Police are looking for three gun-toting goons who robbed a man amid a Fort Greene setup on June 20.

The victim told cops he had arranged to meet a man looking to buy his phone at Cumberland Street, but, on arriving at the agreed upon location near Atlantic Commons at 3:10 p.m., the three thieves appeared — one of them sporting a firearm.

The villains took his phone, car keys, and cash, before hightailing it toward Hanson Place, according to the authorities.

Cops describe the baddies as in their late teens, or early 20s, and they were last seen wearing black and gray clothes.
