They think it's the same three guys doing it. It's not a very sophisticated scheme -- they go up to men on the street, brandish a gun, and take off with the victim's money and phone.

It looks like they have a pretty good idea of who to target, as they've netted more than a thousand dollars in some of the robberies. Only one of their seven victims coughed up less than $600.

The suspects have all been described as black males in their 20s. They were last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at, on Twitter @NYPDTips, or by texting their tips to 274647 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
