Cops are on the hunt for four teens who allegedly robbed two people in Manhattan and attacked one of them, police said Friday.
The teens are wanted for stealing a 48-year-old man’s cellphone in the Financial District around 4:40 p.m. May 9 and for attacking a 22-year-old Uber driver a week later on May 16, cops said.
The teens approached the 48-year-old while he was speaking on his phone on Park Row near Anne Street before one allegedly grabbed the phone and fled, cops said.
A week later, two members of the crew allegedly ordered the ride-share near the corner of Washington Square North and University Place in Greenwich Village and then allowed several of their friends to get into the car, cops said.
When the driver refused service, one of the teen girls allegedly punched the driver in the face while another girl swiped the driver’s Apple earpods, police said.
A third member of the crew held the driver’s arm and snatched the earpod charger box before they all fled toward Fifth Avenue, cops said.
The alleged teen crime spree comes after two 13-year-old girls were arrested last Saturday for running an adolescent crew that’s allegedly been terrorizing upper Manhattan since April with similar stunts — but cops aren’t currently considering the two incidents related.
On Wednesday, another teen, 17-year-old Damir Johnson, was arrested for attacking an off-duty FDNY firefighter.
