    Man Claims to Be Cop During Armed Robbery in Brooklyn: Police

    Two suspects robbed a man in Brooklyn at gunpoint while one man told the victim he was a cop, police say.

    On May 14 at around 5 p.m., two men walked up to a man in Canarsie armed with a gun, according to the NYPD.

    One of the suspects who had a gun struggled with the victim, officials said. Then the second suspect intervened and said he was a police officer.

    The victim then stopped fighting with the first suspect and the pair then stole the victim’s property, authorities said.
