Detectives are looking for two gunmen who robbed a 47-year-old man in Upper Manhattan last month in an alleged motorcycle sale, police reported.

Police sources said the theft took place at 3:10 p.m. on April 25 outside an apartment building on West 149th Street near Convent Avenue in Sugar Hill.

Police said the victim attended the scene after making arrangements online to purchase a motorcycle. But upon his arrival, the two suspects met him and drew their weapons.

Police said the suspects withdrew $ 980 in cash from the victim, then fled on foot eastbound on 149th Street West to Convent Avenue.

The incident was reported to 30th arrondissement. The victim was not injured.

Security video taken near the scene, which the NYPD released on May 14, shows the two suspects running under scaffolding. One of them wore a black hoodie, black pants, black sneakers and a white surgical mask around his neck.

His cohort wore a black doorag, a black mask over their face, a black sweatshirt, light blue latex gloves, and dark colored pants.
