THE BRONX - The NYPD needs help finding a total of three men after two people were assaulted and robbed in Morris Heights.   

Investigators released surveillance images of the suspects in connection with the crimes back on Feb. 8 in front of 1963 Grand Concourse. 

According to police, one suspect approached a 51-year-old woman and grabbed her buttocks. When the victim tried to defend herself, they say the suspect punched her and took off with about $200. 

The same man, along with two others, allegedly attacked a man who witnessed the first robbery. The trio is accused of punching and kicking him before taking off with his phone. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS
