SOUTH RICHMOND HILL — Police have released surveillance footage of two men wanted in connection with cell phone store robberies in Queens and Brooklyn.

On March 30, two men in their teens or early 20s entered Mobile Wireless Champs, at 132-07 Liberty Ave., flashed a gun and demanded money, according to the NYPD. After the clerk forked over some cash, the two men fled, police said, but it was not the first mobile store they allegedly robbed, nor was it their last.

Four days before, the duo hit a Metro PCS store in Brooklyn, according to the NYPD. Five days after the South Richmond Hill incident, the robbers knocked over another Metro PCS store in Brooklyn, police said.

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