The police released footage yesterday of two suspects they believe robbed a man at gunpoint in Astoria last month.
The alleged perpetrators, a male and a female, walked up to a 28-year-old man near 3-15 27th Avenue shortly after midnight on May 22, took out a firearm and demanded his property.
The victim complied and the suspects fled the location with his wallet and iPhone 6. A short time later, the suspects attempted to purchase items at the Trade Fair Supermarket, located at 30-08 30 Avenue, with the victim’s stolen credit card but were unsuccessful.
Video footage of the suspects at the supermarket is below.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)
