The NYPD is on the lookout for three armed men involved in several jewelry robberies from victims in Queens and Brooklyn.

The men last struck in the 61st Precinct in Brooklyn during the early morning hours of Wednesday, June 29 when they approached a 44-year-old man and demanded his belongings at knifepoint. The suspects forcibly removed jewelry valued at approximately $11,000 before making their getaway in a black Honda Accord with a Pennsylvania license plate, police said, adding that the victim was not injured.

The three men struck three nights earlier in Fresh Meadows when they approached a 39-year-old man in front of 75-76 180th St. in a residential area a half block north of Union Turnpike. One of the men pulled out a knife and demanded the victim’s belongings. They forcibly removed jewelry valued at $110,000 before jumping in the same car and driving off northbound on 180th Street, police said, adding that the victim was not injured.

The three men allegedly robbed a 57-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman in Brooklyn’s 63rd Precinct in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 5 when they robbed them at knifepoint of $11,000 of jewelry, a handbag, and an iPhone 11 before driving off in the black Honda Accord.

The crime spree began in Rego Park just after midnight on Monday, May 30 when the three suspects approached a 37-year-old man in front of 99-17 65th Ave. when one of them pulled out a knife and demanded his belongings. This time, the three men forcibly removed approximately $200,000 worth of jewelry from the victim before taking off in the same Honda Accord, according to police from the 112th Precinct in Forest Hills.

The NYPD released a surveillance video of one of the heists but it was too dark to identify any of the suspects.
