Cops Release Photo of Suspects in Subway Knifepoint Mugging

PARK SLOPE — Cops have released new photos of three men who allegedly robbed a 25-year-old man at knifepoint at the Union Street and Fourth Avenue subway stop on last month.

Police are asking for the public's help in nabbing the suspects, who were also spotted on video surveillance chatting in an elevator.

The robbery victim told police the trio stopped him on Feb. 21 to ask the time as he approached the turnstile about 11:20 p.m, according to a police report.

When he pulled out his phone to check the time, one of the crooks whipped out a knife and threatened to cut him, police said. One of the suspects snatched the victim's Samsung Galaxy II phone, while another reached into the victim's pocket and helped himself to $100 in cash.

All three suspects were described as men between 20 and 25 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and 150 pounds. One was wearing a bright purple hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
