Police are asking the public for help in finding two men who attempted to kidnap a man outside of the Hyundai of Long Island City.

On Dec. 12 at 9:50 a.m. the two perps walked inside of the dealership, 34-54 44th St., and approached a 28-year-old man waiting to have his vehicle serviced. The pair then sprayed the victim in the face with an unknown substance and impersonated officers by shouting, “You are under arrest” and “You are a fugitive.”

Police sources said the suspects attempted to handcuff the victim and remove him from the dealership but were unsuccessful.

The duo then fled the location in a grey dodge caravan and headed westbound on Northern Boulevard.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website, on Twitter @NYPDTips or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
