Police are looking for a group of young men who stabbed a 15-year-old boy and robbed him of his Airpods at a Bronx train station earlier this month.

The NYPD released video footage of five culprits involved in the June 6 caper, which took place at 9 p.m. at the 241st Street-Wakefield station, the last stop on the 2 line.

According to law enforcement sources, the victim was on board a northbound train when the suspects approached and demanded his property. 

Cops said they then proceeded to assault the victim, punching him about the head. One of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed the teen in the right arm and upper back. 

During the assault, the crooks obtained the victim’s Airpods and fled out of the station. The video footage shows the group running out of a station stairwell.

Officers from the 47th Precinct responded to the incident. Authorities said the victim sought treatment at a local hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspects’ whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
