Posted: Updated:

Authorities are searching for a trio involved in a robbery at a playground in Starlight Park Wednesday.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the three teenagers running down the street along Sheridan Avenue.

The 14-year-old victim told police the three people approached him around 2:45 p.m. He says one of the suspects then pulled out a knife and all three started to kick and punch him to the ground.

The trio got away with the victim’s headphones. The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated and later released. 

A reward is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest and indictment of the three teens.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
