The NYPD on Saturday released surveillance video and images of the suspects wanted for questioning in the April 14 incident inside the Dantoya 24-hour parking lot on Crotona Parkway, cops said.

The 24-year-old man was inside his van sleeping around 11:30 a.m. when two unidentified men opened the doors of the vehicle, and took his wallet, police said. One of the robbers told his partner to shoot the victim, but no injuries were reported.

The suspects were described as slim, about 15 to 17 years old. They fled with the wallet containing credit cards and cash. A 34-second video clip released by police shows two young men running from the parking lot.

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).
