The police released video footage Friday of three men wanted for holding up a Woodside cellphone store at gunpoint last month.

The suspects allegedly entered the AT&T store located at 58-20 Roosevelt Ave. at around 6:55 p.m. on Aug. 26, before one of the men displayed a firearm and forced an employee into the back office and demanded he open the safe.

The men then placed $60,000 worth of cellphones into a duffle bag and fled the location on foot. There were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.

The suspects are described by police as being between 25 to 35 years of age and having a dark complexion. Police have released surveillance video and photos of two of the three suspects that were taken from the store.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
