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.

Police say the two suspects pretended to be officers before as they robbed a 30-year-old man of $600 worth of personal belongings.

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.

Please are still working to identify the second suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
