Police are looking for four men who robbed a 68-year-old man at a Chinese food restaurant in Gravesend on Feb. 8.

Authorities say the senior citizen, who was lost, wandered into the restaurant on 86th Street near W. Eighth Street and asked the suspects for directions at 5:55 pm. The men pretended they were going to help the victim but instead, grabbed his wallet, stole $80, and fled on foot, according to authorities.

Cops say the first suspect is between 18- to 22-years-old and was last seen wearing a blue winter coat, and the second suspect, who is also between 18 and 22, was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt. The police described the third suspect is as heavy-set male between 16- and 20-years-old and said he was wearing a red stripped sweatshirt, dark pants, and black and white sneakers at the time of the attack. Cops say the fourth suspect is between 18- and 25-years-old, and was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt, black pants, and gray shoes.

Law enforcement officials are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–TIPS, log on to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or send a text to 274637 then enter “TIP577.”
