The NYPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects wanted for robbery in Astoria.
On Sunday, Nov. 8 at 2:50 p.m., inside of A-Town deli/grocery located at 24-20 Ditmars Blvd., three unidentified male suspects observed the victim, an 18-year-old male, use an ATM. The suspects then followed the victim as he left the location, surrounded him a short distance away, threw him to the ground and removed his wallet from his pants pocket. The wallet contained a credit card, a debit card and $1 in cash. The victim, who was not injured, retained the monies that he withdrew from the ATM, which he placed in another pants pocket, separate from his wallet. The suspects fled on foot.
