The police released images for three individuals who they say were involved in a robbery on the Lower East Side last weekend.

At around 4:10 a.m. on Saturday, December 1, two women and a man hailed a cab at East Houston and Allen Street. The driver dropped them off at Grand Street and Lewis Street, where they didn't pay their fare. Naturally, the driver was unhappy, and the police say, "A dispute ensued between the victim and the suspects. The suspects then punched the victim several times and removed his cell phone."

The police, who say the trio fled west on Grand Street, describe the suspects as a Hispanic female with a heavy-set build, another Hispanic female with a slim build, and a Hispanic male with a slim build.
