Police are trying to find five young adults wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Brooklyn, and they are hoping a series of surveillance images will lead to arrests.

The incident happened just after 9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5, on Pulaski Street and Tompkins Avenue in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section.

Authorities say a 26-year-old woman was walking down the street when two of the suspects approached her from behind and displayed a firearm.

The victim was forced to lay facedown on the ground, while the suspects stole her purse and iPhone before fleeing the scene.

The victim did not request medical attention as a result of this incident.

The individuals wanted for questioning were observed following the victim prior to the incident and running from the scene afterward.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
