Three teenagers allegedly robbed a 20-year-old man in Riverside Park around 8:50 p.m. Wednesday, an NYPD spokesperson told West Side Rag.
The victim was walking northbound inside the park at West 99th Street when three male suspects described as approximately 16 years old approached him, according to police.
Suspect #1 put a knife to the right side of victim’s neck, police said. Suspect #2 pointed a silver firearm at the victim’s torso and said, “Give me everything you got,” then reached inside the victim’s pockets, stealing $865, police added. Suspect #3 “worked in concert with” the other two suspects, police said.
NYPD had no further description of the suspects and said the victim did not suffer any physical injuries. The investigation is ongoing.
