By Emily Davenport

Cops are looking for a pair of crooks who robbed a man on a Bronx subway on Sunday morning.

Authorities say that at 1:12 a.m. on April 12, a 55-year-old man was riding a southbound D train. As the train approached the 170th Street station, he was approached by two unknown men who pulled out a kitchen knife and then forcibly went through his pockets.

The suspects took off with $100 at the 170th Street station and fled towards the Grand Concourse area. The victim refused medical attention at the scene.

Police released photos of the suspects taken after the incident in the vicinity of 170 Street and Townsend Avenue:
