Two men paired up to steal packages from a Williamsburg building lobby, according to the NYPD.
The duo went inside a building by Lorimer and Scholes Streets just before 7 p.m. on Feb. 13, and quickly stuffed two small packages into a book bag, police said today.
One of the men acted as a lookout as the other placed the brown packages in the bag, according to police.
The two then fled the building in an unknown direction, police say.
The NYPD describes one of the suspects as a dark skinned male with eyeglasses. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweater, a brown “bubble” coat, black sweatpants, and black and brown sneakers.
The second man is described by the NYPD as a dark skinned male with a beard and mustache, and last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater, a black hooded coat, blue sweatpants, and black sneakers. He also carried a black backpack.
