WILLIAMSBURG — Cops released photos of two suspects Wednesday wanted for separate robberies at the Lorimer Street station.
The first incident occurred on May 26 when the two men confronted a 29-year-old woman at the station about 5 p.m., the NYPD said. One of the suspects put his arms around the victim's neck and demanded cash, police said, while the other man asked her cell phone.
When the woman gave it to them, the suspects fled the scene, police said.
The second robbery happened on June 9 about 1:30 a.m., police said, when authorities believe the same two suspects approached a 26-year-old woman. Again, one of the men placed his hands around her neck while the other suspect snatched her wallet out of her hand.
They quickly fled the scene, police said.
Cops described both men as being between 18 and 25-years-old and being about standing about 5-feet-8-inches tall. One was wearing a white tank top, black pants, red baseball cap, black glasses and white gloves. The other was wearing a white T-shirt, black jeans, black and white sneakers and a blue baseball cap.
