Police in Corona are urging residents to exercise caution in the area as they look for two knife-wielding men responsible for a pair of recent street robberies.

The first incident occurred at 9:05 p.m. on March 28 in the area of 50th Avenue and 98th Street. According to law enforcement sources, two unidentified Hispanic men approached a 30-year-old man, displayed a knife and removed the victim’s wallet.

Four nights later, at 9:30 p.m. on April 1, the crooks struck again at the corner of Corona Avenue and Junction Boulevard. Authorities said the suspects again displayed a knife, this time at a 26-year-old man, struck him with an unknown object and removed his watch. The victim wound up being treated for a minor laceration.

Both holdups were reported to the 110th Precinct. The precinct alerted residents on April 7 through a post on its Twitter account.
