The police are looking for several individuals involved in an attempted robbery Monday evening in Astoria. The suspects can be seen in a security video released by the NYPD.
The individuals approached a 53-year-old man in front of 31-25 45th Street, brandished a firearm and demanded he give them his cell phone, cops said. The victim threw his phone away from the individuals, while a witness dialed 911. The suspects ran empty-handed toward 31st Street.
