Cops are looking for two individuals wanted for three armed robberies in Ridgewood and Brooklyn.

Two armed robbers who held up a cab driver in Ridgewood several weeks ago have been linked to a pair of similar robberies on the same day in Brooklyn, law enforcement sources said.

Police released on Oct. 30 security camera footage of a pair of armed robbers wanted in connection with the robbery pattern.

According to law enforcement agents, the first incident took place at approximately 6:10 p.m. on Oct. 2, when the two unidentified males entered a livery cab outside of a home on Norman Street near Seneca Avenue, within the confines of the 104th Precinct.

The duo then brandished a firearm and demanded the 37-year-old male driver’s property, cops said. The victim complied with the demand, and the two suspects fled the livery cab on foot into a nearby building with approximately $420. There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.

The second incident took place just hours later at approximately 12:05 a.m. on Oct. 3, outside of a home on South Second Street in the 90th Precinct, where the pair entered another livery cab, displayed a firearm and demanded the 40-year-old male driver’s property, authorities reported. The victim complied and gave the robbers approximately $200, who fled eastbound on South Second Street. The victim was not injured as a result of this incident.

Detectives say the next gunpoint robbery took place only 40 minutes later, at approximately 12:45 a.m. on Oct. 3, in the vicinity of Warwick Street and Atlantic Avenue within the 75th Precinct. One individual entered the livery car driven by a 29-year-old male victim, displayed a firearm and demanded the victim’s property. The driver complied with the demands and relinquished $346 to the robber who fled the livery cab northbound on Warwick Street. No injuries were reported.

Both individuals have been described as Hispanic males in their early 20s.

The NYPD has provided surveillance footage from the first incident in Ridgewood.

In the video, the suspect wearing a black hoodie, black sweatpants and a red hat can be seen reaching into the passenger-side window of the green cab, as the second suspect, wearing a white hoodie and gray sweatpants closes the rear passenger-side door, before walking away.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website, or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
