The NYPD is seeking the public’s help in locating two suspects who are wanted in connection with a Richmond Hill robbery.
On July 29 at approximately 11:10 p.m., a 59-year-old Hispanic man was approached by two black men in their 20s at Jamaica Avenue and 134th Street. The two men demanded money from the victim, who handed over a small amount of cash. The suspects demanded more money but when the victim said he did not have any more, one of the robbers punched him in the face, causing him to fall and hit his head. The suspects then fled with the money and the victim’s cell phone.
The victim was removed to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.
Police say both suspects are between 5 feet, 9 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall. One suspect was wearing a black skull cap, a black T-shirt and black pants, while the other was wearing dark pants and a button-down shirt.
