Police are searching for a pair of armed robbers in Brooklyn, and they're hoping a surveillance image will lead to an arrest.

Authorities say the man caught on camera is one of two suspects who attacked a man and a woman on Hancock Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 9:30 p.m. on Halloween.

They allegedly put a gun to the man's head, then took both victims' cell phones and MetroCards.

No injuries were reported.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s with a thin build. He is approximately 5-foot-8 and was last seen wearing a black jacket and a black baseball cap with a red brim.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
