The NYPD is looking for two men wanted in a string of commercial gunpoint robberies around Queens.

During each incident, the suspects, wearing masks and displaying firearms, entered the location and removed cash and property, said police. No one was injured during any of the robberies.

The first incident occurred on November 29 at a Gulf gas station at 131-07 Farmers Boulevard in Jamaica, and the most recent one was on Sunday, at the Hillside Mobile Gas Station on 165-01 Hillside Avenue, also in Jamaica.

All of the robberies occurred in the late afternoon to early evening and, in addition to Jamaica, took place in Hollis, Flushing, Woodside and Springfield Gardens.

The suspects are described as black or Hispanic males. Suspect one was  wearing dark clothing, glasses, a Yankees baseball hat and a partial mask. Suspect two was wearing a black leather jacket, dark clothing, a black face mask and a black skull cap.

Authorities are also trying to identify an individual wanted for questioning in regards to the use of a credit card reported stolen during one of the robberies.

That incident took place on Tuesday, January 15, at around 6:30 p.m., at the Great Big Supermarket on 222-16 144th Avenue in Springfield Gardens.
