Police are searching for three men who allegedly robbed a Flushing spa at knifepoint Monday afternoon.

The trio walked inside Golden Prince Spa, located at 33-70 Prince St., at around 5:15 p.m., before brandishing a knife at a pair of female employees and demanding money.

One of the men held the knife at the throat of one of the employees as his accomplices restrained the other woman.

The trio took off on foot with three iPhones and $700. The victims were not injured in the incident.

The suspects were caught on surveillance video near the spa shortly before the robbery.

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