BROOKLYN - Police say two men wanted for a string of armed robberies across the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn attempted to steal from a Brooklyn liquor store Friday afternoon.

Authorities released video of those suspects at that store along Kings Highway just before 4:30 p.m.

Officers say the suspects, armed with guns walked up to a 59-year-old employee.

The suspects told the employee to go to the register, and then fought with him until they ran off.

The employee was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for bruising and a head injury.

Police describe the suspects as two black men in their mid-to-late 30s.

The suspects are wanted in connection with seven other robberies including one in the Bronx at the Fordham Family Pharmacy on West Fordham Road last month.
