Cops are looking for a crook who robbed a man in broad daylight in the parking lot of a Flushing gas station.

According to police, at 2:15 p.m. on July 12, the 25-year-old male victim met with an unknown man in the parking lot of a BP gas station, located at 154-11 Horace Harding Expy., after agreeing to meet to purchase an iPhone XS Max from him.
