The two men pictured allegedly stole five phones and one tablet from a T-Mobile store in Gravesend.

Cops are looking for two men who allegedly stole five cellphones and one tablet and threatened an employee’s life at a T-Mobile store near West 13th Street and 86th Street in Gravesend.

The men walked up to one of the cellphone display cases at around 4:25 p.m. and began removing phones after cutting off the security cables that attached them to the case. When a T-Mobile employee confronted them, one of the men threatened the employee with a sharp object and told him that he would kill him.

The employee retreated to a back room and called 911. The two men fled down 86th Street, entering a silver sport utility vehicle and speeding off northbound toward Avenue T.

The first man is black, 20 to 25 years old and was last seen wearing a gray knit cap, a black hooded sweater and a dark-colored jacket and pants. The second man is black, 20 to 25 years old and was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweater, a dark-colored jacket, gray sweatpants and blue sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
