Cops are looking for a trio who robbed a woman at gunpoint in Harlem earlier this month.

According to police, at 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 5, a 24-year-old woman was sitting on a bench in the vicinity of West 128th Street and St. Nicholas Terrace when she was approached by three unknown men. One of the men pulled out a gun, held it to her ribs and demanded her property, while the other two stood watch.

The suspects took the victim’s cellphone and purse, which contained two credit cards, and then fled the scene on foot northbound on St. Nicholas Terrace.

On Jan. 20, the NYPD released video of the suspects as the incident took place:

The first suspect is described as a black man between the ages of 24 and 25 years old, standing 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing between 210 and 220 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black knit cap, a brown coat with black shoulder patches and dark colored jeans. The other two suspects are described as black men in their 20s.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
