Cops are looking for two men they say posed as officers to scam $100 out of a 60-year-old man in Queens this week.
According to police, the incident took place at around 3:20 p.m. on September 19th, near Ithaca and Britton Avenues in Elmhurst. Two men in a gray sedan allegedly approached the victim and identified themselves as cops, even showing him an identification holder hanging around one of the suspect's necks.
The car's driver stepped out of the vehicle and frisked the man, police said, before taking about $100 from the man's right pants pocket. The two men then fled the scene. There were no injuries, police said.
The first suspect is described as male, approximately 6'0" tall and 250 lbs., last seen wearing a green long sleeve shirt, black sweat pants, and white sneakers. The second, police said, is also male, and was last seen wearing a light colored shirt. You can see video of the suspects below:
