Sunset stick-up: Three gunmen make off with $7,800 in Sunset Park robbery

Cops are hunting men pictured in these surveillance images suspected of robbing a man in Sunset Park.

Cops are hunting the gun-toting goons who robbed a 53-year-old man in Sunset Park on May 3, nabbing a whopping $7,800.

The victim told police that three pistol-packing perps jumped him on Sixth Avenue near 39th Street at 1:35 p.m., holding him at gunpoint, before slugging him in the face.

The thieves stripped the cash off their wounded victim, along with two debit cards and the man’s iPhone, before fleeing into a waiting Nissan Maxima and peeling off, cops said.

Investigators have released surveillance footage of three suspects, which showed a 5-foot-10-inch man wearing a black hoodie, and two men between 5 feet 8 inches tall and 5 feet 9 inches tall, seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and a green jacket respectively, according to authorities.


Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program.
