Cops are searching for two scoundrels who robbed a Neptune Avenue liquor store at knifepoint on Halloween.

The booze-loving male and female baddies walked into the store near W. Sixth Street on the Coney Island–Brighton Beach border around 6 pm on Oct. 31, before grabbing a bottle of hooch and making their way to the exit without paying, according to police.

An employee then confronted the despicable duo, but the man threatened the worker with a knife, and the crooks ran for it, cops said.

Authorities described the man as 24–27-years-old and six-feet tall, and the woman as around the same age and five-feet-six-inches tall.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
