The NYPD is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating three suspects who are wanted for questioning about three robberies that occurred along the J line on Jamaica Avenue in Richmond Hill this month.

On Jan. 9 at 2:04 a.m., at the 102nd Street subway station, a 22-year old male was on the J train when he was punched in the face. The suspects went through his pockets but were unable to retrieve any property. The victim was not taken to the hospital as a result of the incident.

Three days later on Jan. 12 at 6:40 p.m., at the 121st Street station, the three suspects approached a female victim on the J train and took her iPhone 5 cell phone from her hand and fled on foot. The victim was not injured.

On Jan. 16 at 10:24 p.m. at the 111th Street station, the suspects approached a 26-year-old female victim on the J train and snatched her iPhone 4S cell phone from her hand. That victim too was not injured.

Police are describing the suspects as three black males in their late teens, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall.

One suspect was last seen wearing a red winter jacket, dark pants and dark shoes. A second was seen wearing dark clothing and the third was last seen wearing a dark winter jacket, a gray or white hooded sweatshirt underneath and blue jeans.
