Police were searching on Wednesday for a pair of armed robbers who snatched $500 from a 29-year-old man at a Bronx subway station late last month.

The victim was standing on the mezzanine of the East 143rd Street No. 6 station when the two dreadlocked suspects came up to him at about 4:30 p.m. on June 28, police said.

The man tried to run, but they caught up with him on the stairwell and punched him, showing him a gun.

They grabbed his backpack — with cash and his phone — before leaving, police said.
