Cops are looking for an armed crook who stole cash and property from three people in Flushing in an early-morning robbery.

According to police, at 5:40 a.m. on Jan. 19, an unknown man entered Sexy Nightclub, located at 149-14 41st Ave., approached the three victims — a 22-year-old female, 53-year-old female and a 42-year-old male — and displayed a firearm.

Authorities said the gun-toting bandit then removed personal property, a cell-phone and $2,165 from the victims. He then fled the scene eastbound on 41st Avenue towards 149th Place. The incident was later reported to the 109th Precinct.

On Jan. 24, the NYPD released an image of the suspect, who’s described as a Hispanic man between the ages of 18 and 25-years-old, standing 6 feet tall and as having facial hair and a heavy build.  He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and dark colored pants.
