Two suspects are wanted for an attempted robbery in Ridgewood.

UPDATED Jan. 8, 11 a.m.

The 104th Precinct needs the public’s help in finding two men accused of trying to rob another man at knifepoint in Ridgewood in December after the victim literally took matters into his own hands.

According to police, the incident took place outside of a residence on George Street near Cypress Avenue on Dec. 22 at approximately 2:30 p.m. The victim, a 38-year-old male, stated to police that he was sitting in a vehicle at that location when two Hispanic men approached the driver’s side window. The men asked for directions to another location and handed the victim a napkin with an address on it.

When the victim looked down, authorities said, the suspects pulled out a knife and demanded money from him, police said. The victim then grabbed the knife and drove off, striking another parked vehicle as he fled the scene. He sustained a small laceration on his left thumb but refused medical attention, police said.

The two suspects remain at large and the investigation is ongoing.

One individual is described as a Hispanic male with a heavy build, last seen wearing a dark jacket, winter hat, light-colored jeans and black boots. The other is also described as a Hispanic male with a heavy build, last seen wearing a black bubble jacket with a hood, black winter hat, light-colored jeans and black boots.

The following tweet was released with images of the suspects from surveillance cameras at a nearby business:

The 104th Precinct is asking anyone with information to call the Detective Squad at 718-386-2723. All calls are kept confidential.
