SOUNDVIEW -

Two men are accused of impersonating police officers before robbing people on the street in the Bronx.

At least two incidents were reported to police. The first happened on Westchester and Boynton avenues on Nov. 20.

The suspects struck again on Nov. 24, again approaching a 48-year-old man on Colgate Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard and posing as officers before robbing him.

At least one of the suspects was captured on surveillance video.
