Police are asking for the public's help in finding two men wanted for robbing a Bed-Stuy bodega at gunpoint.

Officials say just before 6 p.m. on Aug. 2, the two men pulled masked over their faces before walking into a bodega on Jefferson Avenue.

One suspect climbed over the counter, while the other pulled out a gun and told three employees that he would shoot them if they did not cooperate.

The two got away with about $1,000.

No shots were fire and no one was hurt.

The suspects are described as teens who stand between 5 foot 7 and 5 foot 9. One was wearing a red multi-color striped jacked, black pants with white stripe on the side and black and white sneakers. The other suspect was last seen wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
