A pair of robbers walked into a RadioShack at a Fresh Meadows shopping center last week, tied up the store’s employees at gunpoint and stole cash and electronics, police said.

The robbery happened about 10:25 a.m. on Friday at the store located at 187-12 Horace Harding Expwy., according to authorities.

After the suspects entered the RadioShack, one of them displayed a silver firearm while the second forcibly bound the two employees with duct tape and then removed about $400 and various electronics devices, cops said. The suspects then fled.

Officers from the 107th Precinct responded to the scene. There were no injuries reported in the incident.

Police have released photos of the perpetrators, both described as black males. The first suspect was wearing a gray shirt, black sweater, black and white baseball cap, and black sneakers; and the second was wearing a light gray shirt with a black hooded sweatshirt.

Anyone with information regarding the incident 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.
