Police are searching for three men and a woman believed to be responsible for assaulting and robbing a 58-year-old man on a subway in the south Bronx earlier this month.
The victim was riding a northbound 2 train at about 4:40 p.m. on Saturday Nov. 14 when the group of four entered the subway from the Third Avenue-149th Street station.
Law enforcement sources said all parties engaged in a verbal dispute, which led to the quad punching the victim before stealing his backpack. The group fled before the train had left the station, leaving the man with a bruised lip.
His stolen bag contained $500, glasses, Sony headphones and a credit card, according to the NYPD.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
