EAST ELMHURST — Police were hunting for two suspects wanted in connection to the stick-ups of four livery drivers in western Queens, authorities said.
Three of the four armed robberies took place on Ericsson Street in East Elmhurst and a fourth occurred in Ridgewood, according to cops.
One suspect allegedly flashed a gun while the other suspect allegedly took the driver’s property in the first hold-up Oct. 12, the NYPD said.
During the Ridgewood robbery Jan. 8, the victim suffered a minor injury after he was struck in the face, and the suspects allegedly fled empty-handed, police said.
On Jan. 21 and 24, one suspect allegedly acted alone, and both of his victims refused to give him anything, police said.
Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
