BROOKLYN -

Police are asking for the public's help finding two men wanted in a string of robberies in Brooklyn and Queens.

Officials say they believe the men committed 10 robberies since early January, with six of them happening in Brooklyn.

Most recently, they allegedly held up a deli in Queens Thursday morning and in Brooklyn ransacked the Smiley News shop on McDonald Avenue in Gravesend Feb. 19.

Officials say in most cases, the suspects burst into small stores with guns and tied up the people inside using zip ties or duct tape.

They've allegedly stolen thousands in cash, merchandise and electronics.
