ROBBERY PATTERN —
Police said they are searching for four men for questioning in connection to a robbery pattern within the confines of the 109th Precinct.
During each incident, the suspects have approached victims from behind, thrown them to the ground and physically assaulted them before removing their property, police said.
During the first incident, which took place just after midnight on Feb. 20, the suspects approached a 32-year-old man in front of his residence on 31st Road and removed $60 in cash and a credit card before fleeing.
The robbers struck again that same night around 1 a.m. This time, they approached a 21-year-old man at Willets Point Boulevard and Parsons Boulevard and stole his iPhone.
During a third incident, which took place around 9:40 p.m. on Feb. 22, two of the suspects approached a 49-year-old woman on 138th Street and removed her Michael Kors handbag, which contained a Louis Vuitton wallet that had a credit card and debit card inside, police said.
The suspects have been described as men in their late teens to early 20s.
