Trio of muggers suspected of nine robberies across Manhattan

A brazen trio of muggers are responsible for a string of nine robberies in northern Manhattan in just over a week, police said Thursday.

The incidents took place between Aug. 22 and 30 in Washington Heights and Inwood, and in all nine of them, the three assailants grabbed their victims and rummaged through their pockets for cash or a wallet, according to police.

Surveillance footage released by cops shows one of the muggers grabbing a 30-year-old man from behind around 5:30 a.m. last Friday at 407 Audubon Ave. in Washington Heights, then putting him in a chokehold as his accomplices steal his cash, according to the NYPD.

That victim — and the other eight — was not seriously hurt, cops said.

No arrests have been made.
