The search continues for two suspects who tied up the employees of a Howard Beach travel agency during an armed robbery Friday morning.

The pair, both armed with guns, entered Liberty Travel, located at 156-40 Cross Bay Blvd., about 9:40 a.m. and ordered its six employees to the back of the agency, police said. They then zip-tied the employees and asked for the location of the safe.

The suspects took an undetermined amount of money from the safe and the employee’s cell phones before fleeing, authorities said.

No one was injured in the robbery.
