Queens Village 105th Precinct police are looking for two armed suspects who allegedly robbed a bodega in Springfield Gardens on Sunday afternoon.

At around 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 19, the two men wearing construction uniforms, including helmets and reflective vests, entered the store at 136-35 Springfield Blvd. and pulled out handguns, police said.

They forcibly took $ 3,000 in cash and about $ 3,000 in scratch lottery tickets from the store workers before flying off in an unknown direction. No injuries were reported, police said.

The NYPD released CCTV that shows one of the suspects walking behind the counter and demanding the cash and lottery cards. He wore a blue helmet, a black face cover, and a yellow and orange reflective vest over a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.

No arrests were made. The investigation is ongoing.
