Posted: Updated:

Three teens were robbed and beaten following a brawl inside a fast food restaurant in Crotona Park East on Jan. 4.

Police say they are looking for 12 people they say were inside the Kennedy Fried Chicken on Boston Road and 174th Street and beat up three teenagers around midnight.

According to investigators, three teens were inside the restaurant when they got into an argument with a group. One of the suspects then hit one of the victims and the argument spiraled into a brawl.

Victims told police they were punched and kicked multiple times in the head and body by several people before they went through their pockets and took their cellphones and cash. The suspects got away with an estimated $1,600 worth of stuff. 

Officials believe the suspects are in their late teens to early 20s.

News 12 is told the teens refused medical attention at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
