THE BRONX - Police are searching for two men who they say posed as undercover cops to rob a man in The Bronx.

Authorities say the suspects approached their victim while wearing bulletproof vests at 193rd Street and the Grand Concourse Friday afternoon.

The impersonators allegedly told the victim to put his hands behind his back. They then stole $300 as they searched him, and fled the scene in a black Nissan Sentra.
