MOUNT HOPE -

The search is on for two men wanted for robbing multiple people of their jewelry in Mount Hope.

The duo's robbery spree all started on July 6 around 7 p.m. along Morris Avenue.

Officials say the suspects pulled a gun on the victim, getting away with $200 and a cellphone.

Police say the pair then went after a 31-year-old man in Manhattan, where they robbed him at gunpoint as he was entering a building lobby. News 12 is told they got away with $3,000, jewelry and a cellphone.

News 12 is told the third attack happened when a 65-year-old man was walking down Tremont Avenue on July 8 at around 4 a.m. That is when one of the suspects grabbed his necklace and knocked him to the ground.

The victim told authorities he tried fighting back, but another man pulled out a gun while trying to steal his bracelet.

When he couldn't take it off, police say the gunman fired at the victim and missed, before they ran off.

Police say only one of the victims suffered minor cuts and bruising from falling to the ground and trying to protect himself.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
