A 14-year-old boy was waiting for a 6 train at the Whitlock Avenue in the Bronx on May 7th when he was approached by two men who identified themselves as cops. They told the young man he had committed a violation, and according to police (the real police... we think) they ordered the boy to empty his pockets.

The NYPD says one of the impostors flashed a gun and took everything from the teen's pockets, while his "partner" snatched the boy's chain. They then fled the station to "parts unknown." Here's video:

Investigators describe the suspects as Hispanic males, one wearing "a red hat and red and white baseball shirt" and the other "with a ponytail, wearing a white t-shirt."

This police impersonator robbery was not the only such incident in the subway last month. On May 12th, two men pretending to be plainclothes cops convinced a man in the Times Square subway station to pay them a "fine" of $250.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
