Police are looking for three men who allegedly robbed a 14-year-old boy in Middle Village last month.
The NYPD released video footage Thursday of three suspects who allegedly stole the teen’s phone, wallet and airpods at around 9:15 p.m. on July 18 while he was walking by 67-59 Metropolitan Ave.
The suspects initially approached the boy and asked him for his property.
The 14-year-old refused and in response one of suspects lifted his shirt and displayed a black object in his waistband.
“Give me your stuff or I’ll kill you,” he said to boy, according to police.
The victim complied and handed over his belongings. The teen was not injured and the suspects fled on foot.
The NYPD released descriptions of the three suspects.
The first is described as having a dark complexion, thin build and long hair which was in a bun. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, dark colored track pants, a white face mask, white socks and sandals.
The second individual is described as having a dark complexion, medium build and short black curly hair. He was last seen wearing dark colored shorts, a black face mask, white T-shirt, and blue and white sneakers.
The third is described as having a dark complexion and thin build. He was last seen wearing dark colored track pants, a dark blue baseball cap, royal blue Adidas T-shirt, blue face mask, dark colored sneakers and black glasses.
