The NYPD is looking for a pair of crooks who robbed a man at gunpoint in Hudson Yards.

Authorities say that at 10 p.m. on Sept. 30, a 22-year-old man was walking along the sidewalk in front of 471 West 33rd Street when he was approached by two unknown men on a moped. One of the men got off the moped, pointed a firearm at the victim and forcibly took the victim’s necklace.

The suspect hopped back on the moped and the pair fled the scene southbound on West Side Highway. The victim refused medical attention at the scene. 

The NYPD released a video and photos of the suspects taken from the scene:
