Police need the public’s help in finding two men who held up a Bushwick bodega at gunpoint earlier this month.

Law enforcement sources said the stickup occurred at 10:10 p.m. on Feb. 9 inside the Halsey Convenience store at 983 Halsey St., near Broadway.

According to authorities, the two perpetrators– both described as black males between 17 and 18 years old– walked into the location and approached a 20-year-old male clerk.

Reportedly, one of the suspects– who stands 5’2”-tall, weighs 160 lbs. and was last seen wearing a purple hooded jacket, a skull cap, a blue and black winter jacket, black pants and white sneakers– displayed a gun and demanded cash.

Police said the employee held his hands up while the second crook– who stands 6’-tall, weighs 180 lbs. and was seen wearing a New York Mets baseball cap, a black bandana, a blue and black winter jacket, blue jeans and white sneakers– removed $400 in cash from the register.

Seconds later, the suspects fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction, law enforcement sources noted.

Members of the 83rd Precinct responded to the scene; there were no injuries.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery of the suspects’ whereabouts that could prove helpful is asked to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-577-TIPS, by text message to 274637 (enter information, then the code TIP577) or on their website.
