NYPD looking to identify suspects in larceny pattern in Bronx neighborhoods
Police are asking for help tracking down two men they say are connected to a pickpocket pattern across the Bronx.
Police say the two suspects are targeting Bronx commuters, with their youngest target being a 13-year-old boy. The NYPD says a lot of the incidents report the suspects are getting away with the victims' cellphones and that it's happening while commuters are either getting on or riding Bronx buses.
Two of the incidents were reported on the BX18 bus in October and December of 2023. Police say both a 49-year-old woman and a 13-year-old boy were robbed of their cellphones while on the BX18 bus.
Police say the suspect's latest target was a 19-year-old woman on a BX12 bus on Jan. 12 along Fordham Road. Her cellphone was stolen.
No injuries were reported in these incidents across Fordham, Highbridge and Morrisania neighborhoods.
