Police released images Thursday of a suspect wanted for robbing two men at gunpoint outside a luxury apartment building on Center Boulevard in June.

The robbery took place on June 22 at around 1 p.m. when a gun-toting man approached the victims — aged 25 and 33 — outside 45-45 Center Blvd., a TF Cornerstone building located on the Long Island City waterfront.

The suspect demanded the victims’ property and then took cellphones, cash, and wallets, police said. The perpetrator then fled the scene on foot toward Anable Basin, police said.

The 33-year-old suffered a scratch on his left shoulder while the 25-year-old was unharmed, police said.

Police released two photos of the man wanted for questioning. He was last seen wearing a green-colored top, fawn pants, a baseball cap and a backpack.

The 108th Precinct tweeted that the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
