QUEENS — Cops arrested at least one person for a recent gunpoint robbery in Forest Hills Gardens, authorities said.

The arrest was made on July 7, but a spokesman for the NYPD said Wednesday that the case file was sealed, and he could not provide any information.

He also refused to explain why the arrest was sealed.

The robbery occurred on Saturday, June 29, around midnight on Slocum Crescent, as three women arrived home after having dinner at an Austin Street restaurant, cops said.

Two men approached them, showed a gun and stole jewelry, money and cell phones, cops said.

Cops said they are still looking for two other muggers who threatened a 66-year old man with a knife and a gun on Wednesday, July 3, at 12:15 a.m. at the intersection of 70th Avenue and Fleet Street, only one block away from the first robbery.

The men, who drove in a white vehicle, took the victim's backpack which contained his cellphone and car keys, cops said.

Two women, who robbed a 51-year old man at knifepoint at 63rd Avenue and Alderton Street in Rego Park on July 2 are also being sought.

Editor's Note: A police spokesman initially told DNAinfo that the robberies were not related, but later cops said all three robberies were part of the same pattern.
