Police released on Saturday images of three men wanted for recently robbing a man at gunpoint in Jamaica.

Law enforcement sources said the stickup took place in the vicinity of 90th Avenue and 171st Street at 11:10 p.m. on the night of July 12.

According to authorities, a 57-year-old man was walking home through the area when the three perpetrators approached him. One of the suspects displayed a gun and demanded the victim’s property.

Police said the suspects proceeded to take jewelry and cash worth about $700 from the victim, then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The incident was later reported to the 103rd Precinct; the victim was not injured.

A security camera near the crime scene captured images of the suspects. Cops described two of the perpetrators as Hispanic males in their late teens or early 20s; one wore a white T-shirt and dark shorts, while the other wore a yellow-and-blue striped T-shirt and dark pants. Police described the third suspect as a black male in his late teens or early 20s wearing dark-colored clothing.

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