Police need the public’s help in finding two men responsible for a recent stickup at a Hollis fast food restaurant.

Law enforcement sources said the heist occurred at 12:55 a.m. inside of the Kennedy Fried Chicken located at 205-29 Hollis Ave.

The NYPD released on Nov. 21 video footage of the male suspects walking in front of the restaurant, then entering it and approaching the counter.

One of the suspects — who wore a red bandana on his face — pulled out a silver handgun while his partner jumped over the counter. The video shows the gun-slinging suspect pulling the bandana down to speak, then pulling it back over his face.

His cohort is also seen behind the counter confronting a 56-year-old male employee.

Police said the bandits removed $1,500 in cash before fleeing the scene in an unknown direction. Officers from the 103rd Precinct responded to the incident; the worker was not injured.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
