BROOKLYN - Cops are trying to find two men in connection with the robbery of an Uber driver in Coney Island. 

Investigators have released a surveillance image of the suspects, who they say got into the vehicle at Neptune Avenue and West 33rd Street earlier this month. 

The passengers allegedly showed a metal object to the 21-year-old driver and threatened him. Authorities say they got away with the victim's cellphone, but he was not harmed.
