New York police are looking for robbers who caused severe damage in Manhattan’s Central Park.
According to the New York Daily News, the organization has been stealing Citi bikes, cash and mobile phones from victims in the Upper West Side and Central Park.
In some cases, the suspect has used force or brandished weapons such as knives.
Although the crime rate in New York City is on the rise throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, this particular group appears to have troubled Manhattan when it attacked a 13-year-old boy and stole his LA Dodgers hat on March 13.

The police told the “Daily News” that the suspects launched another attack four days later when they brandished a knife at two men riding Citi bikes in Central Park.
This special event occurred in the daytime around 3:30 pm on March 17th. The victim was not harmed in the ordeal, but the suspect stole the bicycle.
Last Tuesday, around 9 pm, a group of robbers stole from two teenagers on the riverside avenue.
The 14-year-old and 15-year-old teenagers told the police that the organization flashed a gun and stole the teenager’s cell phone and sweatshirt.
About two hours later, they managed to enter a residential building on Riverside Drive and stole an electric scooter.
According to the “Daily News”, about an hour later, the thief stole the phone and wallet of a 27-year-old man with $375.

Although he was not injured, the group threatened to stab him. This incident occurred near the west of Central Park.
The authorities have released surveillance videos of the suspects, hoping that the public can help them track down.
The police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call (800) 577-TIPS to call the crime stopper.
Criminal activity in New York City is on the rise, and crimes against Asian Americans are on the rise.
On Saturday, the police said they were looking for a man who wanted to shout anti-Asian slander against a 44-year-old woman and her three children, spit and kick her mobile phone off the subway.
The police called this a hate crime. Authorities described the suspect as a dark-skinned man, aged between 50 and 55, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 150 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a dark camouflage sweater, dark sports pants and black sandals. Police said he was wearing black socks on his left foot and white socks on his right foot.
The woman and her three children are taking the Southbound No. 5 train to Times Square at approximately 2.30 pm.
This attack is the latest in a nationwide anti-Asian hate crime incident.
Also near Times Square last week, a 65-year-old Filipino-American woman was viciously beaten while walking to the church.
The parole convicted of murdering his mother nearly two decades ago was charged with assault and attempted to assault others with hate crimes.
