Two men robbed several victims at gunpoint, stealing nearly $5,000, in the Sunset Park area.

According to the authorities, at around 3:20 a.m., a 43-year-old man was standing by his vehicle parked on 57th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues when the perps approached him.

One of the crooks took out a gun and pointed it at the victim’s chest and stole $400 and iPhone Air Buds, worth around $160. The perps then hit the victim in the head with the gun, forced him into his car and drove with him to a building on 59th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.

Shortly after, one of the suspects then entered a pool hall there, and pointed the gun at a 29-year-old man, while the other stole $1,500 from him and $2,500 from the cash register. The first suspect then pointed the gun at a third victim inside the location, a 27-year-old man, and stole $300 from him.

As the two crooks were exiting, a 38-year-old man walked in. The first suspect pointed the gun at him and stole $700 from him before fleeing the location. The suspects are described as male Hispanics.

There are no arrests; the investigation is ongoing.
