Three men preyed upon two unsuspecting victims waiting for an Uber in the Bronx, police said.
A 19-year-old man and his 21-year-old friend were waiting for their ride at 3 a.m. on Inwood Avenue near West 170th Street in Mount Eden when they were targeted, according to cops.
They were suddenly pushed to the ground by three men, who grabbed a necklace, cell phone and $30 in cash before fleeing the Oct. 30 incident in a black Nissan Altima, authorities said.
The NYPD on Saturday released surveillance video and photos of the terrible trio: One had a dark complexion, dark hair and a heavy build; he was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with a graphic on the front, blue sweatpants and white sneakers.
A second suspect had a medium complexion, with a heavy build and a long beard; he was last seen wearing a blue Nike hooded sweatshirt, a black cap, blue sweatpants and white New Balance sneakers. The other accomplice had a dark complexion, with medium length hair and a medium build; he was last seen wearing a black Kenneth Cole long sleeve shirt, with multi-colored jeans and aqua blue sneakers.
