The man pictured is one of six individuals wanted for robbing a man in Ridgewood.

Police are searching for a group of suspects who allegedly followed a man off the L train in Ridgewood and robbed him of all his valuable possessions.

According to police, the incident took place on Jan. 19 at approximately 1:30 a.m. after the 24-year-old victim exited the L train at Wyckoff Avenue and George Street. The victim was followed by a group of three males and females who were also on the L train with him, police said.

Law enforcement sources said the group of six then attacked the victim on George Street near Cypress Avenue and demanded his property. The suspects forcibly removed the victim’s jacket, his wallet containing cash, his Beats headphones, a gold chain and a gold ring he was wearing, according to authorities. The individuals then fled the scene running westbound on George Street.

The victim then called 911 and 104th Precinct responded to the scene; the victim sustained minor injuries but did not require hospitalization. Police said the victim did not know the people who attacked him.

Police described the suspects as three black men and three black women, all believed to be in their 20s and last seen wearing dark clothing.

In the following video released by police from a Wyckoff Avenue deli near the exit of the L train, the suspects can be seen leaving the station in a scattered group.
