Cops are looking for a pair of crooks who robbed a man at gunpoint in the Bronx this month.

According to police, at 3 p.m. on Feb. 3, a 25-year-old man was unlocking his apartment, located in the vicinity of Elliot Place and Walton Avenue, when two unknown men approached him from behind. They pointed a firearm into the victim’s back, said “Don’t even think about it,” and started to go through his pockets.

The thieves took the victim’s wallet, which contained $60, and fled the scene in an unknown direction. There were no injuries reported as result of this incident.

On Feb. 27, the NYPD released photos and video of the suspects taken from nearby surveillance footage:

Anyone with information in regard to the identities of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
