Cops are looking for a pair of rooks who robbed a man at gunpoint at a Soundview subway station.
Authorities say that at 3:45 a.m. on Feb. 26, the 27-year-old victim was inside the Morrison Avenue-Soundview subway station when he was approached by an unknown man who asked for money. After the victim said he didn’t have any, the suspect followed him onto the southbound 6 train platform.
The suspect then threw the victim to the ground, kicking and punching the victim in his face and body. Another unknown man then approached and pulled out a black firearm and held it to the victim’s head.
The gunman pulled out the victim’s wallet from his pants pocket and then the two suspects fled the station in an unknown direction.
The NYPD released a photo and video of the suspects taken from surveillance footage:
