Police are looking for two men who robbed a man at gunpoint inside his Flushing home on Monday.

On Monday, August 5 at around 6:25 p.m., a 33-year old man was held up by the two men in his home located in the vicinity of 157th Street and 26th Avenue.

The men displayed a gun and demanded cash from the victim, before making off with $200. The victim was left unharmed after the incident.

Both suspects were caught on CCTV in the residence, and were observed to be young Asian males sporting baseball caps.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @ NYPDTips.

Good thing Caban lost the DA election. She would have given them gold medals to acknowledge their efforts and told them not to do it again.

She didn't lose the DA election

Robbery would still be illegal under Caban. How could you be stupid enough not to know that?

She lost the Democratic primary for the DA, do you know what those words mean? The DA election hasn’t happened yet.

No, I think they’re “almost identical” twins. Probably that applies to their acumen as criminals as well.

Hopefully when they find these lowlifes, they’ll go to jail and be wearing matching jumpsuits.
