Police are looking for a man behind stickups at two Queens gas stations in two days last week.

According to law enforcement sources, at 4:55 a.m. on Jan. 17, an unknown man entered a gas station located at 35-15 Greenpoint Ave. in Long Island City. Once inside, the man approached the 49-year-old male employee and demanded the money from the register.

The victim complied and the suspect took off on foot in an unknown direction with $1,000 in cash. There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.

The following day, authorities said, the suspect entered another gas station in Briarwood, located at 138-50 Hillside Ave., at 4:50 a.m. on Jan. 18. The suspect approached the 56-year-old male employee and demanded the contents of the register.
