The cab began to make its way when one of the two suspects flashed a black gun at the driver and demanded cash. The driver exited the vehicle and ran, leaving the suspects to remove $70 from the car.

Less than an hour later and fewer than four blocks away, the one of the two suspects struck again. He jumped into the second livery car at around 9:30 at Weirfield Street between Irving and Wyckoff avenues.

The suspect flashed the gun almost immediately this time and again demanded money. The driver immediately complied, giving the armed male $250 in cash.

The suspect then fled from the scene on foot.

Police describe both suspects as black males, one wearing a dark top and a cap, and the second wearing a dark-colored hoodie.

The hoodie-wearing suspect donned a mask over the bottom of his face during the second recorded incident.

Cops are asking for anyone with information in regards to this incident to call the department's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS, or tosubmit tips online.
