Cops seek armed crooks who robbed two men at gunpoint in the Bronx

The NYPD is looking for a pair of crooks who robbed two men at gunpoint in the Bronx.

Police say that at 10:30 p.m. on May 16, a 31-year-old man and a 38-year-old man were in front of 1534 Selwyn Avenue when they were approached by two unknown men. Both men pulled out firearms and demanded the victims’ property.

One of the suspects then began to hit the 31-year-old man in the head with the fireman while the two forcibly took a bag containing approximately $2,500 dollars from the 38-year-old victim. The two suspects then fired their weapons, striking the 31-year-old multiple times in the torso.

The suspects fled the scene in a black sedan that was last seen headed southbound on Morris Avenue. The 31-year-old victim was taken to Bronx Lebanon Hospital in stable condition.

The NYPD released photos and video taken from the vicinity of the incident:
