Cops are looking for help in identifying five creepy characters who pulled a gunpoint robbery in Brooklyn the morning after Halloween.

Police on Saturday released surveillance photos and a 30-second video in connection with the Nov. 1 stickup inside Chupetas Night/Bar Club at 87 Central Ave. in Bushwick.

The drama unfolded shortly before 5 a.m., when five unidentified men brandishing firearms entered Chupetas and ordered a 24-year-old man to hand over his property, the NYPD said.

The victim complied, and the five robbers fled on foot with four cellphones, a yellow metal necklace and approximately $700, police said. No one was injured in the holdup.

Police said one of the suspects had a medium build and was last seen wearing all black with a hooded sweater, light-colored face mask and carrying a red and black book bag.

Another had a slim build and was clad in a black coat with brown fur around the hood, black pants, a white monster Halloween mask and seen holding a black firearm.

A third suspect had a medium build and was last spotted wearing a black and red hooded sweater, white t-shirt underneath, black jeans, a white dinosaur-like Halloween mask and seen holding a red and black book bag.

A fourth suspect with a medium build took a pass on the Halloween mask. He wore a large black hoodie jacket, red sweat pants, black winter hat and a black face mask under his chin.

A fifth wanted individual is slim and was last seen wearing all black with a hooded sweater, yellow hat, black face mask and holding a black firearm.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
