Police need the public’s help in finding three men who robbed a Flushing spa at knifepoint this week.

Law enforcement sources said the caper took place at 5:15 p.m. on May 21 inside the Golden Prince Spa located at 33-70 Prince St.

According to authorities, the three unidentified male suspects walked into the business and approached two female employees, ages 29 and 31. One of the bandits displayed a knife and held it at the 29-year-old woman’s throat and demanded cash, while the other suspects restrained the 31-year-old woman.

The perpetrators proceeded to steal $700 in cash and three iPhones, then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction, police said.

Officers from the 109th Precinct responded to the robbery; neither woman was injured.

On May 23, police released security camera footage showing the suspects walking near the spa just before the heist occurred.


Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
