The NYPD released video surveillance Wednesday night that shows four suspects sought in connection to a burglary at a Forest Hills restaurant during the early morning hours of Feb. 1.

Police from the 112th Precinct reported that two men entered the locked Bamboo Ya Japanese restaurant located at 69-12 Austin St. at around 1 a.m. and proceeded to take cash and an iPad. A third man and a woman acted as lookouts outside the eatery before all four ran off eastbound on Austin Street to the 71st Avenue subway station, where a security camera captured a clear look at all four suspects.

One wore a black jacket over a black hoodie, black sweatpants and a blue face mask, while another suspect wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and gray sweatpants. The third suspect wore a black bubble jacket and gray pants, while the fourth wore a green jacket over a black hoodie and black sweatpants.

A reward of up to $3,500 is being offered for information that leads to their arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
