Cops are searching for two window shoppers who ran off with a mannequin wearing a wedding dress in Fresh Meadows last month.

On Nov. 19 at around noon, two suspects entered Royal Events, located at 168th Street and Union Turnpike, during business hours, according to law enforcement sources.

While an employee was in the back of the store, the pair removed a mannequin wearing a wedding gown from a display window and fled in an unknown direction.

Police have made no arrests. The incident was reported to the 107th Precinct.

A wanted flyer distributed by the precinct depicts the two suspects — a male and a female each wearing a black coat— captured by surveillance cameras.
