Gang Severely Beats, Robs Teenager of His Bike on Clinton Street

Posted on: November 5th, 2018 at 5:03 am by

Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a group of perpetrators wanted in connection with an assault and robbery near the intersection of Clinton and Henry Streets.

On October 28, a group of eight to ten young thugs approached a fifteen-year-old boy and pummeled him. One of the attackers – all of whom were male – reportedly slashed the victim’s left hand with a sharp object; another launched the teen’s bicycle at him causing bruising to both body and face. The crew then stole the bicycle and scattered from the scene.

Apparently, the victim did not know the attackers. He was removed from the scene by EMS to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.

In the meantime, cops from the 7th Precinct released the following images of the suspects wanted for arrest. If you have any information please call the Detective Squad at 222-477-7671.
