Police are asking for the public's help tracking down four suspects wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Queens on Halloween.

Police say the four people seen in surveillance photos walked into Virani Jewelers in Jackson Heights just after 6:30 p.m. on October 31.

Investigators believe the suspect with the mask had a gun when he forced an employee into the back office to open the safe.

Meanwhile, the other two suspects stayed out front and emptied the cases while the fourth person watched the door.

The robbers then fled the scene with an unknown amount of jewelry.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
