The NYPD is seeking the public’s assistance in finding two teenagers wanted in connection with a robbery at gun point on a Woodhaven street last weekend.
On Saturday at approximately 5:30 p.m. on 81st Street, the suspects approached the victim, a 27-year-old female, displayed a firearm and demanded her iPhone. She refused and was punched in the face by one of the suspects. Her phone was taken and the suspects then fled on foot.
Police say both suspects are black males around 16 years old, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall. One suspect was wearing a white-and-blue shirt and the other was wearing a red shirt.
Issues with teenagers and criminal activity have been a common problem as of late in South Queens. At least nine teenagers have been arrested in robbery incidents in the past month in the 106th Precinct.
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.
