THE BRONX -

The NYPD is searching for three suspects wanted in an armed robbery in a Co-op City building.

The incident occurred around 5 p.m. Friday at 140 Debs Place.

Authorities say the suspects approached a 34-year-old resident who was getting out of the elevator, pointed a gun at him, and demanded he empty his pockets.

Police say the men then struck the victim over the head, and took his cellphone and wallet. They say the suspects came away with about $1,800 worth of valuables.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the suspects to give them a call before they strike again.
