Police are looking for three men they say have robbed more than a dozen drivers in Queens, usually by telling their victims they have flat tires.
Two of the men can be seen on this surveillance video taken last Thursday.
In most of the incidents, police say one man will tell a person they have a flat tire and when the person goes to look at the damage, the other men steal items from the car.
In at least one incident, the victim says two men approached her car, saying she had gotten a parking ticket, then sprayed shaving cream on her back and wiped it off.
When she got home, property was missing from the jacket.
The incidents date back to August.
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.
