The NYPD has released video footage of two men wanted for a pair of robberies that occurred within a month in Ridgewood.

According to police, the first incident occurred on Sunday, May 15, at approximately 12:30 a.m. where one suspect approached a 36-year-old man within the vicinity of Forest Avenue and Norman Street and asked him for the time.

As the victim was attempting to answer, the second suspect approached from behind and grabbed him. The individuals then removed the victim’s wedding ring and watch before fleeing the location.

The second incident took place nearly a month later on Sunday, June 12, at approximately 10:25 p.m., police said. This time both suspects approached a 29-year-old male as he walked down Norman Street.

The crooks then punched the victim in the face and held him to the ground while they removed his wallet, which contained $200 in cash, and his Samsung Galaxy cellphone.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to both robberies.

Law enforcement agents have described the suspects as two males between the ages of 20 and 25.
