Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who robbed two cellphone stores in south Queens earlier this month.

According to police, at 7:20 p.m. on July 2, two unknown men entered a Metro PCS store located located at 110-32 Farmers Blvd. in St. Albans. Once inside, the suspects pulled out a silver and black firearm and took four cellphones and two Bluetooth speakers, which is said to be worth $506 all together.

The perpetrators fled northbound on Farmers Boulevard. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.

The second incident occurred at 10 a.m. on July 22 at the Metro PCS store located at 188-08 Jamaica Ave. in Hollis. Police said the bandits approached the counter and demanded cash and phones.

After one suspect took $100 from the cash register, law enforcement sources said, the crooks left the store with an unknown number of cellphones. There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.

Police released on July 25 security camera footage from the Metro PCS store in Hollis:

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
