An investigation is underway in Williamsburg after an armed robbery on a train platform earlier this month.
The NYPD released a video of two men they would like to question in connection with the incident.
Authorities say the robbery happened on Thursday, Oct. 3. around 2 p.m. at the Grand Street station along the L train line.
Police say two men went up to a 16-year-old waiting for a train and pulled a knife on him.
They say the suspects demanded his property, resulting in the victim giving them his cellphone before they got away.
No one was hurt in the robbery, but now more than three weeks later the NYPD is still trying to make an arrest.
Authorities are hoping someone will recognize two men in the video.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
