THE BRONX — A trio or robbers hooked a cane around the neck of a man smoking a cigar on the street with his buddy before stealing $800 at knifepoint from the pair, police said.

One of the suspects, who can be seen in video released Thursday, grabbed a victim with his cane outside 1201 Manor Ave., near Westchester Avenue, in Soundview just after 3 a.m. on Oct. 13, NYPD officials said.

He demanded the victim hand over everything he had as another suspect pulled a knife on the second victim, demanding the same, police said.

A third suspect, who can be seen wearing a blue jacket and blue jeans, rifled through one of the victims pockets, snatching his phone and cash, police said.

The victims, 33 and 45, handed over a total of $800 cash and a phone, police said.

The trio then fled the scene on foot, heading north on Manor Avenue, officials said.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS
