The New York City Police Department is asking the public’s assistance identifying the two suspects wanted for a robbery in South Ozone Park earlier this month.
On Feb. 4, at 4:10 a.m., the victim, a 25-year-old man, picked up the suspects in his livery cab at the intersection of Marcus Garvey Boulevard and Fulton Street in Brooklyn. The suspects requested to go to 133rd Street and Linden Boulevard in South Ozone Park. When they reached the destination and the victim was making change for the suspects, the male suspect reached into the victim’s pocket, removed an undetermined amount of money and the two suspects fled the taxi.
The male suspect is described as a light-skinned black man, 20 to 25 years old, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and a black jacket.
The other suspect is a black woman, 20-25 years old with a thin build.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
