The NYPD is looking for an armed trio who robbed a man at gunpoint in Queens and fled the scene in separate vehicles.
Police say that at 7:45 a.m. on March 17, the NYPD responded to a call regarding a robbery in the vicinity of 142nd Street and 59th Avenue in Flushing. Upon their arrival, officers were informed by a 37-year-old man that at 10:50 p.m. the previous day, three unknown men pulled out a gun and forcibly took an undetermined amount of the victim’s money.
