New York City police are looking for three people in connection with a series of robberies at electronics stores in Brooklyn and Queens.

Police said the robberies occurred in four separate precincts between Oct. 28 and Dec. 21. One of the stores hit was the Montague St. Radio Shack in Brooklyn Heights.

They say the suspects entered the premises wearing ski masks, displaying firearms and ordering employees to the rear of the store before removing cash and merchandise.

In surveillance photos released by the NYPD to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Friday, however, the faces of two of the suspects are visible.

The first three robberies occurred at Radio Shack stores. The last was at a cell phone store in Queens where a female victim was bound with zip ties. She was not injured.

There were no injuries in the other incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
