Cops are looking for a duo who they say tried to rob two men on the streets of the Lindenwood section of Howard Beach.
According to police, at 11:30 p.m. on May 6, a 53-year-old man and a 35-year-old man were walking in the vicinity of 153rd Avenue and 84th Street when they were approached by two unknown men.
One of the suspects told them, in sum and circumstance, to “hand over their money,” while the other gestured to the victims’ waistband and told them to hand over his iPhone.
The victims refused, and the suspects fled the scene empty-handed on 84th Street.
The 106th Precinct tweeted out photos of the suspects, who are described by police as black men:
