A man was robbed at knifepoint near Steinway Street earlier this week by a pair of thieves who used his bank card to withdraw more than $100 in cash, according to police.
The 38-year-old victim was near 41st Street and 34th Avenue on Feb. 6 when the two unidentified men approached him at around 1:15 a.m. and took out a knife, police said.
The two then forcibly stole the victim’s ATM card from his wallet, and demanded his pin to access the account.
The pair later made two unauthorized transactions that totaled about $106, police said. It is unclear when the purchases were made.
The 38-year-old was not injured as a result of the robbery.
