SPRINGFIELD GARDENS — The police were reaching out to the public to help identify two men who have robbed 15 bodegas, gas stations and cellphone stores across southeast Queens since late November.

The suspects, described as two white or Hispanic men, are wanted for questioning in a string of armed robberies that stretches from southeast neighborhoods such as Springfield Gardens, Laurelton, South Jamaica and Hollis to Kew Gardens Hills.

A video at the Hillside Mobile gas station, on the corner of 165th Street, caught images of the suspects Jan. 20 as they allegedly robbed an employee around 10:30 p.m.

One suspect was seen wearing dark clothes, glasses, a New York Yankees hat and a partial mask. The other was wearing a black leather jacket, dark clothing and a black face mask and skull cap.
