CENTRAL PARK A group of teens, who sources said were between 12 and 14, was being questioned for a Central Park mugging spree in which they are suspected of taking an iPad and iPhone from two women and slugging a man who refused to hand over his cash Monday morning, police said.
The teens first tried to mug the 31-year-old man, whose name was not released, near East Drive and 96th Street about 5:15 a.m., but punched him in the face when he refused to cooperate, an NYPD spokesman said.
The man managed to escape to Fifth Avenue and 96th Street, where police found him after receiving a 911 call, according to the NYPD. He refused medical attention at the scene, but as he was telling officers what happened, the crew mugged two more women, 46 and 48, in the park nearby, police said.
The teens made off with an iPad and iPhone, the NYPD said.

“a group of teens”...
oh those naughty “teens”.
No problem today that was not created. In prior days, if the guy had not punched the daylights out of them, or shot them, the police would have worked them over before they got to the PD.
Cannot do that any more.

American English: Teens
But we all know what these “code words” mean.
Although I suspect none of the perps are named, Alex, Pete, Georgie, or Dim.
Good to see NYC returning to the bad ole days under Kaiser Wilhelm.
5:15am on a school day?
Any parents at home?
More Lithuanians on the rampage?
Apparently you don’t remember the windings that were well known in Central Park. It is a place to avoid....long ago and far away it was nice but hasn’t been safe in DECADES
perfecto..... between Scoob and Bye Bye Birdie I think you have nailed it
You can't see them very well in the dark? How racist! < / sarcasm >
0bama kids? (secret code for you know what) - just waiting for Chrissie Tingle Leg and Sgt. Shultz to make it the new “N” word.

"Well if you're that strapped for cash, I'd suggest a part-time job. How about a paper route? It builds character. It did in my case."
“Another story about violent teens. What’s the problem with kids these days?”
Not sure. When I look at the role models and entertainment these kids have it is hard to understand. Maybe eventually the rap music, gangsta thug life, pro-athlete with a criminal record, broken homes, and a lack of Christian values will finally get these kids back on track... To prison.
Teens? Any better descriptions? Were they Gibmedat teens or polite teens?
