Police are looking for two men who robbed a woman in Flushing and used her debit card to buy food just hours later.

Authorities say that on Friday, August 12, at approximately 4:15 a.m., the two suspects approached a 38-year-old woman from behind near Main Street and 37th Avenue.

Just a few hours later, between 6:24 a.m. and 9:35 a.m., the suspects used her debit card at a McDonald’s at 30-01 Stratton Street, a Stop and Shop at 31-06 Farrington Avenue and the H-Mart at 29-02 Union Street.
