    The FBI has released new video of the three robbers who stuck up an armored car guard leaving a Queens bank earlier this year, and the agency says the men could be responsible for another heist at a check-cashing business in 2013.

    The FBI has released new video of the three robbers who stuck up an armored car guard leaving a Queens bank earlier this year, and the agency says the men could be responsible for another heist at a check-cashing business in 2013.

    Agents say the guard was leaving an HSBC bank on Broadway in Elmhurst with a regularly scheduled pickup in the middle of the day Jan. 31 and was in the business' ATM lobby when the three men attacked.

    Surveillance video from the scene shows two of the men shoving the guard against a counter with one pointing a handgun at the victim's face. The third robber then runs in through the door and can be seen grabbing a large bag before fleeing the building.

    The other two suspects then left, but the FBI says the robbers pepper-sprayed the guard before getting away. It's not clear how much cash they took.

    The FBI says the men could have also robbed a PLS Check Cashing location on Northern Boulevard in Queens on Jan. 25, 2013. The particulars of that robbery aren't clear.

    GardaWorld, the company that employs the guard, has offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the robbers.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI at 212-384-1000. The suspects should be considered armed and extremely dangerous, the FBI said.
