Cops Hunt Dutch Kills Gunman

Police are searching for three men who robbed a couple at gunpoint in Dutch Kills on July 22.

Cops said a 22-year-old man and his 20-year-old girlfriend were walking outside a building at 36-22 33rd Street in Dutch Kills at about 3:10 a.m. on July 22 when the three assailants approached them from behind. One of the men flashed a weapon and demanded cash and personal property from the victims, while his accomplices surrounded them, police said.
The man handed over his watch, wallet and mobile phone to the thieves, who fled northbound on 33rd Street in a dark-colored car, police said.
The two victims were not injured and refused medical assistance at the scene, an FDNY spokesperson said.
The suspects are described as black males, approximately 22-years-old.
