Police from the 104th Precinct are looking for two men who mugged a 22-year-old man in Ridgewood on Saturday night.

The victim was in front of 10-80 Wyckoff Ave. near the Summerfield Street intersection when he was approached by the two suspects. One of them grabbed the victim by his neck while the other forcibly removed his cellphone, police said.
