Police are searching for the duo behind a pair of August robberies in Kew Gardens Hills.

The two perps approached a 40-year-old man delivering food around 147th Street and 75th Road on Aug. 22 around 11 p.m. While one of the men had the victim in a chokehold, the other took his cell phone and wallet, which had $250.

Three days later, at about 11:40 p.m., the robbers struck again by 75th Road and Main Street. They went up to a 55-year-old man who had just used an ATM machine. With one of the crooks placing him in a chokehold, they made off with $700.

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.
