Police released on Wednesday images of a man and woman who recently orchestrated the armed robbery of a 64-year-old cab driver in Jamaica.

Law enforcement sources said the trouble began at 7 a.m. on April 1, when one of the conspirators — described as a black female between 17 and 25 years of age, standing between 5 foot 1 inch and 5 foot 4 inches tall, weighing between 120 and 150 pounds and wearing a white coat with a fur-lined hood — flagged down the male victim at the corner of 4th Avenue and Pacific Street in Brooklyn.

The woman instructed the driver to take her to the front of an apartment building located at 148-19 90th Ave. in Jamaica. Upon arriving at the location, police said, the woman then called the second individual to come down from the location and pay for her ride.

Seconds later, authorities noted, the other suspect — described as a black male between 25 and 32 years of age, standing between 5 foot 6 and 5 foot 9 inches tall, weighing between 160 and 180 pounds and wearing a blue and white jacket with “00” on the back, a blue hooded sweatshirt, white sneakers and dark colored pants — approached the driver, displayed a handgun and demanded cash.

Police said the victim handed over to the male suspect $130 in cash and his cellphone. The male suspect then ran back inside the apartment building, while the female suspect exited from the cab and headed westbound on 90th Avenue.

The incident was reported to the 103rd Precinct; the driver was not injured.

The NYPD released surveillance camera footage of the male suspect.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
