Police seeking help ID-ing 12 suspects in late-night robbery on Avenue C

'The NYPD is searching for a dozen suspects from a robbery on Sept. 17 at 12th Street and Avenue C.

According to the NYPD and published reports, a 23-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman had just left a bar on Avenue C at Eighth Street around 3:45 a.m. when they encountered the group — eight males and four females — several blocks away. 

One of the suspects displayed an unspecified weapon, and others in the group were said to have taken the couple's cell phones, wallets and debit cards. 

"This neighborhood is good. You can tell who's who," a local resident told PIX11 News. "I don't know any of these people whatsoever."

Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online. All calls are strictly confidential.

Once again, we need beat cops and more regular patrols. These three left a bar across from a station for Christ’s sake

Mayor Adams a former cop cares more about his political status than taking care of the city. Him and his toy robot.

FYI, a facebook friend of my husband just posted that she was mugged yesterday, Sept 25th, at 4:30 pm at Avenue A and 4th St, which is by Key Food. This facebook friend is a 60 year old woman, East Village street smart, and fought back. She said that her assailant was a teenage woman and spent two hours at the 9th Precinct afterwards filing a report. She said that her daughter was assaulted on the street a while back as well and warned everyone to be aware.
