FLUSHING — Police have asked for the public’s help in locating at least two men and one woman wanted in connection with a pattern of three armed robberies that occurred within the 107th Precinct in Flushing.
The male suspects were described as black men in their 20s, including one who is 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build and a clear complexion.
The female suspect was described as a black woman in her 20s, 5 foot 3 inches tall and weighing between 120 and 140 pounds with long, curly black hair.
The first robbery occurred April 14 at around 10:45 p.m. near Grand Central Parkway and Avon Road when three black men approached a 63-year-old woman as she entered her vehicle.
Police said the men dragged her into the trunk of another car, removed her personal property and held her in the vehicle while the black woman used her ATM card to withdraw cash from her account.
The victim was later released unharmed, police said.
On Dec. 22, the suspects struck again at around 7:30 p.m. near Kendrick Place and Mayfield Road.
Two black men approached a 58-year-old woman as she exited her vehicle, forced her back into the car, removed her personal property and held her in the car while the black woman used an ATM card to take out cash.
That victim was also unharmed, police said.
The suspects struck a third time Jan. 14 at around 11:20 a.m. near Marengo Street and McLaughlin Avenue, when two black men approached a 68-year-old woman and pushed her into her vehicle, police said.
The victim screamed and the two black men fled in a dark-colored sedan.
In all three incidents, a firearm was either displayed or threatened, police said.
Some of the suspects wore masks, police said.
