Police are looking for two robbers who were caught on video stealing a man's cell phone and chain in a brazen daylight mugging in Brooklyn last month. 

The two suspects shoved the 49-year-old man against a wall at Fulton Street and Schneck Avenue in Cypress Hills about 10 a.m. Oct. 14. One of them pointed a gun at the victim.

Then, after taking what he could, one of the robbers ran off. The gun-wielding robber continued to point the weapon at the man for a few seconds more before walking off.

The victim wasn't injured, police say.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
