Suspects impersonated cops, cuffed victims & stole phones: NYPD

Suspects impersonated cops, cuffed victims & stole phones in the Bronx: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men pretending to be police officers who cuffed three people inside a Bronx residence and robbed them of their cellphones.

The three men showed up at a second-floor Mayflower Avenue residence on Oct. 9 at 3:30 a.m. and identified themselves as cops, the NYPD says. The suspects then cuffed a 36-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man before taking their cellphones.

Police say the robbers then headed to the basement apartment, where they again impersonated police officers, cuffed a 51-year-old man and took his phone.

The three suspects fled and remain at large, police say. See video of the suspects above.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
