NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police have released surveillance video of one of the men wanted in connection with a robbery in Central Park.

Around 6 p.m. Tuesday, two men walked into a boat rental stand located next to the Loeb Boathouse at West 73rd Street and East Drive and demanded cash from a teen worker, investigators said.

When the teen said there was no money, police said one of the suspects flashed a folding knife and stole the teen’s cell phone and cash from the tip jar before fleeing, CBS 2 reported.

The teen was not hurt.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect who allegedly pulled a knife on the teen. The suspect is believed to be between 15 and 16 years old and about 5-feet-7-inches tall. He was last seen a turquoise T-shirt and dark jeans.
