Police released video footage Monday of two suspects who allegedly robbed a 15-year-old boy at knife point in Forest Hills last month.

The suspects allegedly approached the teenager at around 3:10 p.m. on Nov. 14 in front of 98-31 Metropolitan Ave., with one of them displaying a knife and demanding his property.

Police say the second suspect then punched the 15-year-old in the face and then took the victim’s bookbag. The bag contained a laptop, calculator and charger. Both of the suspects then fled in an unknown direction. The victim did not sustain any serious injuries.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
