Cops are looking for a pair of crooks who assaulted and robbed a man in Glendale over the weekend.

According to police, at 6:24 p.m. on April 22, a 28-year-old man was heading into AutoZone, located at 749 Wyckoff Ave., when he saw a man and woman outside of the store. A dispute occurred between the man and victim, which led to the man striking the victim on head with a glass bottle.

As the victim was being assaulted, the female suspect took his sneakers, police said. The suspects then fled the scene.

In a post on Twitter, the 104th Precinct noted that the suspects were known to the victim as “Justin” and “Bridgette.”

The NYPD released a photo of Justin on Twitter.

No arrests have been made at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
