Police released images on Friday of two men wanted for striking a man with a car, then taking his property near a Woodside nightclub last month.

The hit-and-run robbery occurred at 2 a.m. on Aug. 15 outside the Medusa Lounge located at 25-18 50th St.

According to authorities, the perpetrators – described as black males – chased the 29-year-old man out of the lounge, entered a nearby black vehicle and then struck the victim.

Once the victim was on the ground, police said, the suspects exited the vehicle and removed the man’s necklace, money and cellphone, then got back in the car and sped away.

Officers from the 114th Precinct responded to the incident; the victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery 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.
