Cops are looking for a duo who robbed a teenager at knifepoint and stole his bike in Maspeth this past summer.

Authorities say that at 7:15 p.m. on Aug. 24, a 15-year-old boy was in the vicinity of 60th Street and 60th Avenue when he was approached by two unknown men. One of the men pulled out a knife and demanded that victim’s burgundy freestyle bicycle.
