NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are searching for three suspects wanted in connection with several armed robberies at electronics stores in Brooklyn and Queens.

Police said the suspects struck at least four times last year between Oct. 28 and Dec. 21.

In each incident, the men stormed into the stores wearing ski masks, flashed firearms, and ordered the store employees into the back of the stores, police said.

The suspects took cash and electronic merchandise before running off, police said.

The first three robberies occurred at Radio Shack stores. The last was at a Queens cell phone store on 120th Street.

Police said in that incident, the suspects bound a female victim with zip ties and then took cash and cell phones from the store before fleeing. The woman was not injured.

Police released a surveillance image of two suspects from the last incident.

There were no injuries in the other incidents.

The suspects are described as black males ages 20 to 25, standing between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-9 inches tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
