The search is on for two men who posed as police officers during two attempted robberies.

Investigators say the two men flashed shields and said they were officers during two incidents in Manhattan last December.

One incident happened on the Lower East Side, while the other occurred in Washington Heights.

Both suspects are described as Hispanic or black males, 25 to 35 years old. No property was removed in either incident.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
