The police are searching for two men wanted in a gunpoint robbery of two pedestrians in Woodside last month.
The pair of suspects approached two men, ages 32 and 25, in front of 64-13 Broadway at about 6:10 a.m. Saturday, April 21, according to police. One of the suspects pointed a shotgun at the victims while the other removed personal items from them, including a wallet, money, keys, cell phone and jewelry.
The suspects then fled. No one was hurt during the robbery, police said.
Police released surveillance video of one of the suspects retrieving a shotgun from behind a bin just before the alleged robbery. That suspect was wearing blue jeans and a red hooded sweatshirt, and was described as being about 25 years old, 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8 and 140 pounds.
The other suspect is described as being in his 20s, about 5 feet 5, and wearing a black waist-length jacket and green Army baseball cap
