Nearly a week after announcing that a group of subway dance show performers beat a F train rider, the NYPD now says a subway dancer robbed two teens at the Union Square station.
According to the police, last Friday, at about 3:50 p.m., two 14-year-old boys were watching a street dance performer at the station. After he finished, the suspect lured the boys "to an abandoned side of the 'L' line platform" and made them give him an iPhone and $30. Then he told the victims to get on a L train and leave.
The suspect is described as being 17-19 years old, about 5'8" in height and 170 pounds, with medium length black hair. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie jacket with white lettering and dark colored sweat pants. Anyone with information in regards to this incident 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 or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
