Sept. 17, 2018 By Tara Law

Police have released photos and video of two black men who made anti-white comments about a 16-year-old boy and robbed him.

Police say that the pair approached the teen on a southbound F train at the Forest Hills/71st Avenue subway station on Aug. 29 at 10:15 p.m. 

The duo made anti-white comments about the boy and told him to hand over his valuables. The boy gave them his cellphone and $24 in cash. 

The pair then got off the train and walked off in an unknown direction.

Both of the men are described as being between 20 and 25 years old, and around 6 feet 2 inches tall. The first suspect was last seen wearing a white shirt, black shorts and green neon sneakers; the other was wearing a black shirt, white pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
