Police say two gunmen approached the victims around 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
One of the robbers produced a gun and told the men not to make a noise or he would shoot.
The thieves stole a briefcase, a wallet containing cash and a cellphone. But victim Kevin Cook tells WCBS-AM that when one of the robbers saw his 2010 LG Quantum cell phone, he scoffed and gave it back.
The older model has a screen that slides up to reveal a keyboard.
The robbers remain at large.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
