The NYPD was searching for three male suspects in connection with a robbery at a spa on Northern Boulevard in Flushing last week.
According to the NYPD, on Thursday, Sept. 6, at 1:50 a.m., inside the Hawaii Relax Spa — located at 149-50 Northern Blvd. — a 32-year-old man was approached by three unknown individuals in the basement stairwell demanding money.
One individual displayed a butcher knife while the other two individuals forcibly removed the victim’s wallet, containing $100 cash, and his backpack, containing a Mac Book Air laptop, Beats headphones, and a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus cell phone, before fleeing westbound on Northern Boulevard, police said.
There were no injuries reported, police said.

A third suspect was described as approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall, 160 pounds, with a medium complexion and a long, black afro. He was last seen wearing a earring in his left ear, a red Nike Air hooded sweatshirt, black shorts and black sneakers.
