Cops are looking for three people involved in a recent gunpoint robbery on a Ridgewood street.

Police said the holdup occurred at 1:20 a.m. on Nov. 6 along Decatur Street between Irving and Wyckoff Avenues.

Law enforcement sources said the 40-year-old male victim was walking home from a neighborhood bar, heading westbound on Decatur Street, when he came across a man whom he believed to be acting suspiciously.

According to authorities, the victim promptly turned around and headed eastbound on Decatur Street — only to be confronted by two suspects who apparently had followed the man from the bar. One of the perpetrators then displayed a firearm, told the victim not to look at him, and demanded his property.

Cops said the duo then stole the man’s iPhone, a wallet containing credit/debit cards and $120 in cash. The suspects then fled the scene westbound on Decatur Street toward Irving Avenue.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to the incident. The man was not injured.

On Nov. 14, the precinct tweeted out a grainy security camera image of the suspects. Police sources described the perpetrators as a black woman and two black men; no further description was available.

Anyone with information regarding the stickup can call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723; all calls are kept confidential.
