Teen cell thefts
The NYPD is looking for several teens wanted for stealing cell phones from people off the street in Forest Hills.

Police are looking for several teenagers who stole cell phones from seven individuals on the streets of Forest Hills within the last two weeks.

In each incident the suspects approached the victims from behind and forcibly took their cell phones.

The first robbery, involving a 42-year-old male victim, occurred on Thursday, December 20, around 6 p.m. at Yellowstone Boulevard and 67 Avenue.

Two hours later, the suspects robbed a 39-year-old woman at Queens Boulevard and Yellowstone Boulevard.

In the following five incidents, the teens continued to steal from people along or right off of those two roadways, robbing their latest victim, a 54-year-old woman, on Wednesday afternoon.

Police describe the suspects as black males, 16 to 17 years old and wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
