The NYPD was asking for the public’s help in identifying four suspects wanted in a robbery at Viriani Jewelers in Jackson Heights on Halloween.

One of the suspects, wearing a Halloween mask and armed with a gun, allegedly forced an employee to a back office, where he made her open a safe, police said. Two other suspects then allegedly swiped jewelry from a display case while a fourth suspect watched the front door of the shop, at 74-15 37th Ave., according to cops.

The suspects allegedly fled with an unknown amount of jewelry that included necklaces, rings and rope chains, police said. All four suspects were described as Hispanics men, and one suspect was said to be dark-skinned, the NYPD said.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at nypdcrimestoppers.com or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
