Police are looking for a pair of punks who purloined thousands of dollars from two W. 16th Street apartments on Jan. 20.

The thieving twosome broke into the two-family house between Bay 50th Street and Avenue Z in Gravesend at 12:30 pm by forcing open rear windows to two units, police said. Once inside, the insidious duo took $1,000 from one apartment and $12,000 from the other, a police report states.

Police say the first suspect is a male last seen wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and black sneakers with white laces. The other suspect is a male last seen wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black gloves, and black sneakers, police said.

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.”
