A man was beaten and robbed last month at the Woodside Houses by a group of suspects who were later seen in the Bronx, according to authorities.

Police say the 21-year-old victim was walking in front of 50-50 Broadway, within the confines of the 114th Precinct, around 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24, when he was approached by the suspects who proceeded to punch him in the body and forcibly removed his wallet, police said. The victim refused medical attention at the scene.

It was unclear what was contained in the stolen wallet, according to authorities.

At least three of the suspects were seen later that day at a bodega in the vicinity of Jerome Avenue and 166th Street in the Concourse section of the Bronx.

The NYPD released surveillance images of two of the suspects haggling with a store employee inside the bodega. One of the suspects wore a dark jacket with blue sleeves and a hood. He wore a black face covering. The second suspect wore a black hooded jacket and black face covering.

Police also released an image of a third suspect, who was seen wearing a multi-colored jacket and a red baseball cap under a hood.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
