NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police in Manhattan are looking for a trio of robbery suspects wanted in five separate April incidents.

Authorities said two men and a woman assaulted and stole from people leaving bars on Christopher Street. In each robbery, the suspects struck the victim — often times knocking them to the ground — before removing property and fleeing.

All of the victims were treated for their injuries and released.

The latest robbery happened at 81 Christopher Street, where a 26-year-old man was hit in the head and had property stolen from him.

Police released photos of two of the suspects sought in the attacks. A third suspect was described as a black male, between 32 and 35 years old with short black hair and a lean build. He was last seen wearing a multi-colored outer vest and tan pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
