Two women are wanted as suspects in the gunpoint robbery of a cab driver in Maspeth.

Detectives are looking for the suspects who recently robbed a taxi driver at gunpoint in front of the Grand Motor Inn in Maspeth.

According the NYPD press office, a total of three women entered the cab as he was sitting in front of 72-51 Grand Ave. at about 3 p.m. on Oct. 9 before displaying the firearm and forced the driver to take them to the intersection of Whitney Avenue and Denman Street in Elmhurst.

Two of the women sat in the back, with one of them wielding the gun, while one sat in the front, law enforcement sources said.

At some point, police reported, the suspects forced the driver to put on a condom and they filmed him as he complied with their demand.

The suspects allegedly took $49 in cash upon being dropped off at the location and fleeing on foot, police reported. The incident was later reported to the 110th and 104th precincts.

NYPD did not have a description for the women other than the fact they are three females in their 20s.

The 104th Precinct posted photos of two of the suspects on their Twitter page asking for the public to report any information leading to the suspects.

Anyone with information regarding the incident can call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
