Police from the 101st Precinct in Far Rockaway are looking for two men in connection with an armed robbery last week.

The two suspects were on the corner of Cornaga Avenue and Beach 22nd Street around 7:18 p.m. when they pulled out handguns and approached an adult man and removed unknown property from him, police said.

The two assailants then approached a 50-year-old man and took $400 and his ID. The two men fled on foot.

There were no shots fired and the two victims were not injured, police said.

The NYPD released images that show the two suspects attacking one of their victims, waiving their guns as a man in a wheelchair flees the scene.

One of the gunmen was wearing a dark sweatshirt with blue jeans and the other was in a black hoodie with black sweatpants.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
