NEW YORK (AP) - Police are looking for a group of six males in connection to two store robberies that took place within 15 minutes of each other.

Authorities say both incidents took place in Queens on Jan 7.

In the first one, police say the six males tried to distract an employee with questions. When the worker took out a mobile phone from a case, one of the males sprayed some kind of substance at him before taking the phone and fleeing.

Authorities say six males went into another store shortly after, and took $3,000 worth of electronics from a case. An employee who confronted the group was also sprayed with some kind of substance.

The suspects then fled.
