The NYPD is looking for two men wanted in connection with a robbery in Jamaica earlier this month.

On Wednesday, April 15, around 11:35 p.m., two men approached a 46-year-old man in front of 88-15 168th St., according to police.

The two unidentified men proceeded to push the 46-year-old against a nearby wall, punch him in the face and steal his wallet, according to the NYPD. The men ran eastbound on 89th Avenue with multiple stolen credit cars, police say.
