Police are looking for two suspects wanted for a gun-point robbery in a Long-Island City playground.

The suspects approached two men in their 20s inside John F. Murray Playground  on November 29 at 6:30pm. near 45th Avenue and 11th Street.    

The robbers began a conversation  (a 23 year-old and a 24 year-old) which then turned into an armed robbery.  

One of the suspects lifted his shirt and revealed a gun in his waistband and demanded the victims’ cell phones and wallets, police said. 

 “You know what it is,” he said showing them the gun according to the police. 

The suspects then forced the 23 year-old to walk to Palace Fried Chicken on 44-45 21st St. a block away where they made him withdraw $100 from an ATM.

The suspects took the money and fled southbound on 21st Street. 

Both suspects are described as black males in their 20’s. One was wearing a grey,  blue jeans, hooded sweat shirt and red sneakers. 

The second individual (not pictured) is a male, black, in his 20s; last seen wearing a black and white varsity style jacket, black sweatpants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards 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).
