The father and uncle of a 16-month-old boy fatally shot in September are suspected in a subway robbery last week, police said.

Anthony Hennis, 22, who was with his son Antiq when he was killed, is being sought for allegedly robbing a teenager’s watch with his younger brother on Thursday.

Police said Anthony and Ammany Hennis, 20, approached a 19-year-old on a southbound 3 train nearing the Saratoga Avenue subway station around 2:30 p.m. in Brownsville, Brooklyn.

After receiving verbal threats, the teen gave the brothers his watch, police said. Anthony then punched the teen in the face, cops said.

When the teen’s pregnant sister attempted to defend him, police said Anthony smacked her.

The brothers fled the train at Saratoga Avenue station, according to police.

Police were trying to locate them Sunday.

When his son was killed, Anthony was reportedly uncooperative with the police department. Two men were eventually arrested for Antiq’s death.

Anyone with information about the robbery asked to call the NYPD’s tip line at at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). All calls are confidential.
