A Bronx robbery duo is believed to have targeted another jewelry store this week — more than two months after they made out with about $100,000 in loot from another business, cops said. 

The pair displayed guns as they entered King Jewelry, a department store on Third Avenue near East 150th Street around 10:15 a.m. Thursday, police said.

They ordered the store clerk, a 28-year-old woman, to go to the back of the store and open the safe, demanding, “Give me all the money!”

When the clerk told them the safe was empty, they grabbed $43 and an iPhone 11 from a 43-year-old man also working at the store, cops said. 

They bolted from the store, heading east on Westchester Avenue. No one was hurt. 

On Dec. 16, police believe the same pair targeted A & K Jewelry in Foxhurst, where one of the crooks allegedly pistol-whipped a 58-year-old employee as his accomplice swiped the jewels from behind the counter, cops said.

The thieves made off with a six-figure load of neck chains and pendants in the 1:55 p.m. heist, police said.

Unlike their previous $100K heist on Dec. 16, 2020, the Bronx robbery duo only snatched $43 and an iPhone 11 before bolting out of King Jewelry.

The employee suffered a cut to the back of his head and was treated at Lincoln Hospital.

Police released surveillance images of the suspects following the most recent incident — one was last seen wearing a black cap, black face mask, black jacket, black jeans and black sneakers.

The other wore a black face mask, dark glasses, a black winter jacket, black jeans and black sneakers.
