MANHATTAN — Police are searching for a group of young men who violently attacked at least three men in and around the Port Authority earlier this month, choking and kicking their victims before running off with their belongings, the NYPD said.
Police said the four suspects operated in the early hours of Feb. 12 and Feb. 16 — targeting their victims in the early morning hours. They made off with a wallet, an ID card, a debit card, a MetroCard, $70 and cellphones, police said.
They punched the man, threw him to the ground and kicked him, police said.
The crew struck again four days later about 4:30 a.m., assaulting a 41-year-old man in front of 360 West 43rd St., near Ninth Avenue, police said. In that case, they took the victim's iPhone, police said.
Five minutes later, they violently robbed a 32-year-old man on the uptown A, C and E platform, the NYPD said.
Police released the name of one of the men, 18-year-old Keanu Kemp, but did not identify the other three.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
