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).
