Authorities say the two men put a 38-year-old woman in a choke hold on Myrtle Avenue in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section around 7 a.m. Friday.

They stole a bag containing her computer, wallet and cell phone, then used her credit card at a nearby McDonald's an hour later.

The woman, who refused medical attention at the scene, is expected to be okay.

The suspects are both described as black males, about 5-foot-6 and weighing 140 pounds.

Anyone with information in regards to this robbery is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
