FLUSHING — Police were looking for two men wanted in connection with a series of gunpoint robberies, cops said.

The first incident happened May 5 in front of 133-46 Avery Ave. At about 12:30 a.m., the two men armed with a gun approached a 49-year-old man and stole an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

A day later, the duo struck twice along the same street, according to the NYPD.

At 12:15 a.m., the men robbed a 50-year-old man at gunpoint and made off with his cash and cellphone, cops 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.
