Sep. 1, 2023 By Bill Parry

Police from the 105th Precinct in Queens Village are looking for two suspects who attempted to break into a home located near the Mount Sinai Seventh Day Adventist Church on Aug. 30.

The two crooks were caught on camera as they cased the joint near the intersection of 93rd Avenue and 217th Street just before 6 p.m. The two men attempted to enter the residence but were thwarted from gaining entry and ran off empty-handed southbound on 217th Street toward Jamaica Avenue, police said.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the failed burglary.

The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspects on Aug. 31.

One of the men wore a camouflage baseball cap, a blue facemask, and a blue shirt with a red crew neck collar. His partner wore a black hoodie over an olive green T-shirt, black pants, white sneakers and a black baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
