The police are searching for one of two men who were involved in an armed robbery in April.

The two men allegedly entered the apartment of a 32-year-old man on April 7th at 1:10 am, located in the vicinity of 31st Ave and 30th Drive, and hit the victim in the face with a pistol, according to the NYPD.

The suspects then took off with an undetermined amount of cash, an iPhone 6, and a wallet containing the personal information of the victim. The victim did not sustain any injuries.

Last Monday, July 13th, police arrested the first suspect, identified as Adamou Maikarfi, 33, from Manhattan. He is being charged for robbery in the first degree, burglary and assault in the third degree.

The second suspect remains at large. He is described as a male, black, 6-feet-two, 210 pounds, with short black hair.

He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweater with white stripes along the side of the arms, possibly an Adidas sweater, the NYPD said.

Police are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
