Police are looking for help finding two suspects believed to be responsible for two robberies within a half an hour of each other early Saturday morning.

The first robbery took place in Flushing, according to police, who say that the two men choked a 22-year-old man and and showed a gun before taking his phone and wallet.

In a separate incident that happened 20 minutes later, police say that a man and a woman were robbed while getting out of their car in Briarwood.

In that incident, a suspect again showed a gun before taking a phone, purse and wallet, according to police.

The suspects are believed to have thin builds and be between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 9 inches tall, and between the ages of 18 and 20.

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 www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
