A teenager was attacked and robbed in broad daylight as he sat outside a Dunkin’ shop located at 325 Wyckoff Ave. in Ridgewood earlier this month.

Police say a 17-year-old boy was sitting at a table outside drinking coffee just after 2 p.m. when he was approached by five men who, without provocation, struck him in the face.

The group forcibly removed the young man’s Apple 11 iPhone and AirPods before taking off on foot. The gang was last seen heading southbound on Myrtle Avenue and was captured on surveillance video about 10 minutes later entering the subway station at the corner on Wyckoff and Myrtle Avenues. Although the victim sustained a minor injury to his face, he refused medical attention, according to authorities.

The NYPD released the surveillance images of the suspects. One man had a beard and black hair and he was wearing a black fur hooded winter jacket with a gray hooded sweatshirt and a face mask.
