NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are asking the public’s help in identifying two suspects wanted for at least four robberies in Manhattan.
In each case, the suspects brandished their guns and stole wallets, phones, iPods, and keys from people on the street.
The first holdup was on June 29 around 10:25 p.m. Police said the suspects followed the victim, a 30-year-old Asian man, into a building on the Lower East Side.
The most recent was Wednesday night on Clinton Street. In that encounter, police said the suspects approached a 64-year-old Asian woman around 8:57 p.m. at 250 Clinton Street and took her wallet at gunpoint before fleeing.
The first suspect is described as a Black man between 18 and 25 years old, standing nearly 5’10″ tall with a thin build. The second suspect is around the same age with a similar build, but only 5’6″ tall.
None of the victims were injured.
