MOTT HAVEN -

Police are looking for two suspects in connection to a robbery pattern this month, all taking place in broad daylight.

Police say the two suspects started their robbery spree along East 150th Street on Feb. 5, attacking a 15-year-old victim with a knife and fleeing with $50.  

On Feb. 7, police say the pair pulled out a knife on a 22-year-old victim who tried to escape but was punched and slashed in the back of the head. According to police, hours later, the two suspects ambushed a 32-year-old man asking for a dollar just a couple blocks away from their second attack.  When the victim refused, police say the suspects began to beat him and fled the scene. The suspects are believed to be between the ages of 18 to 25.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
