The police were on the lookout for two suspects who committed grand larceny at Resorts World Casino at South Ozone Park Oct. 18, according to authorities.

At the casino, located at 110-00 Rockaway Blvd., the two men allegedly stole a 44-year-old woman’s purse that contained three credit cards while she was at a gaming machine, the NYPD said.

Surveillance shows one individual, a light-skinned male wearing a black baseball cap, black jacket, gray shirt and black sneakers, sitting next to the victim after her purse falls on the floor, according to police. Afterwards, the first suspect uses his foot to move the purse over to him, then allegedly picks up the purse and walks away with it, they said.

The second suspect, a dark-skinned male with a beard, wearing a black and gray jacket, a gray shirt, black sweatpants and light-colored sneakers, sits down in the first suspect’s place, according to police.

Later, both individuals fled the casino in an unknown direction, according to the NYPD.
