A man was robbed at gunpoint by two suspects in Sunnyside Wednesday morning.

The victim, 26, was walking in front of 41-01 46th St. at around 5:30 a.m. when two suspects pulled up alongside him in a gray Nissan car.

The suspects got out of the car and approached the man before one of the assailants displayed a gun.

They snatched the victim’s bag and wallet and then got back into the car. They then fled the scene southbound along 46th Street.

Police said the bag contained around $1,600 worth of electronics which included a laptop and a cell phone. The man’s wallet contained around $10 cash.

The first suspect is described as a Hispanic man and was last seen wearing dark clothing. The police did not provide a description of the second perpetrator.

No injuries were reported and the investigation remains ongoing, police said.
