Cops are looking for a duo who robbed two people at gunpoint just days apart in Jamaica this summer.

According to police, at 11:50 a.m. on Aug. 17, a 38-year-old man was on Guy R. Brewer Blvd. when he was approached by two unknown individuals. One of the individuals displayed a firearm and pointed it into the victim’s back, demanding his property.

The victim complied and handed over his Rolex, his iPhone 6 and his car keys. The suspects then fled the scene.

Days later on Aug. 20, the suspects approached a 31-year-old man in the vicinity of 165th Street and South Road at 10 p.m. The suspects displayed a handgun, which they used to hit the victim in the face.

The suspects then took the victim’s Samsung Galaxy cell phone and his wallet, which contained $70 cash and the victim’s debit card, before fleeing the scene. EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to Queens General Hospital, where he was treated for lacerations on his face and a broken nose.

The 103rd Precinct tweeted out these photos of one of the suspects involved in the robberies:
