Two armed robbers busted into a Hollis barbershop earlier this month, firing a gun before taking $1,600, gold jewelry and cellphones, according to police.

The holdup, which was captured on surveillance video, took place at the Strickly Skillz Barbershop just before 2 a.m. on April 12 on Hollis Avenue, near 191st Street, law enforcement sources said.

The duo reportedly entered the business while pointing their guns at three men inside — a 33-year-old, a 29-year-old and a 23-year-old. The suspects then rifled through the victims’ pockets and took $1,600, three cellphones, gold chains and a driver’s license. While searching the victims, one of the suspects fired off his weapon but did not injure them.

After grabbing the victims’ property, the suspects then fled southbound on Hollis Avenue, according to authorities.

Police describe both suspects as black men in their 30s. One of the men was last seen wearing black pants, a black jacket and a black hat with a white symbol on the front. The second perpetrator was last seen wearing a ski mask with gloves and had long dreadlocks tied in a bunch.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
