Police are searching for three suspects who robbed a married couple in Astoria Saturday night and stole their cash and credit cards.

The group surrounded a 43-year-old man and his 35-year-old wife as they were walking in front of 14-14 26th Ave. at around 10:20 p.m., according to police.

One of the suspects produced a metal pipe and then demanded money from the couple, police said.

The 43-year-old man handed over his wallet which contained $50 cash and credit cards. The suspects did not steal anything from the woman, police said.

The suspects then fled on foot eastbound along 26th Avenue, according to the NYPD.

Police said that neither of the victims sustained any injuries.

Police released a video of one of the suspects wanted for questioning.

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).

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
