Police are looking for two men who they say robbed three businesses in Queens by pretending to be police officers.

The New York City Police Department released surveillance video of the second attack.

It happened on March 12 at the Body Works Salon in Woodhaven.

Police say the suspects show guns and police badges to get in the building, then tie up their victims.

The men look for cash and electronics, according to police.

The first incident occurred on March 8 in Flushing.

Police say they struck again Tuesday at another salon in Astoria.

No one was hurt.

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.
