The police want your help busting an armed motorcyclist who robbed a pair of Mobil gas stations in western Queens last Tuesday.

Brandishing a handgun, the perp went up to the man working the counter at the Mobil at 68-09 Queens Blvd. in Woodside around 6:30 a.m. He fled on his motorcycle with $300 and an Arizona iced tea, the NYPD said. No injures were reported.

The bad biker struck again that night, hitting the Mobil at 35-15 Greenpoint Ave. in Sunnyside.

He went in around 9:30 p.m., again showing a handgun to the person at the counter. That time, he zoomed off on his motorcycle with $900. There again were no injuries reported from the incident.

Cops describe the man as being around 5 feet, 7 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black and silver skull helmet with a mirrored visor, dark-colored pants and a black jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477), or, for Spanish, 1 (888) 57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
