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.

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.

"And on a school night, too".

“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.

The problem is what to do?If you were to catch one and they got damaged....then what?...They are minors....you prob. go to jail....

The three I picked up sat. night are a good example....felt sorry for them ....said they needed a ride home ....$12 fair...got to destination...heard a “click click” sound ...I said “what was that? jumped out of the cab....before I could get around the cab they were GONE...a block away very fast..pretty sure they had a piece....and chickened out on robbing me....no chance I could catch them.
So I could probly have run one down w the cab....If he got hurt then what?...Besides Im not allowed to be armed...and I think one of them was....
So Im one of the last drivers picking up “dark” people at night....and several on sat. looked a Lot more dangerous than these kids...but paid well no problem.

This is a quandary .....unarmed Im confident in my abilities...but I think they were armed.

Ive delt with large ornery people physically many times for years...worked const.35 yrs in chicago,,detroit...st lewis... Im 50 now......I have a problem...with hurting “kids”and as ive gotten older......more and more look like “kids” to me....lol

I think the world is stranger now ...and maybe I Cant understand the people well anymore.....
I had 2 white college “kids” in the car last week end who told me they sold bed-bugs for the last 4 yrs in college and in fact payed all there bills that way.....apparently there is an established bed-bug market on campus...they are smoked...for effect...They explained in detail how they set up their bed-bug farm in the school dorm....there eyes were strange...the color was faded....like almost clear...

It seems that things are changing faster than I can understand them.

oh well

Not sure if they were having some fun with you or believed it themselves. On the other hand, Smoking Bed Bugs sounds like a good name for a rock band.

“kids”
“punched in the face”

The headline says “kids.” No. These are not kids. They are feral savages.

The problem is that parents don’t care what their kids do. They just hatched them and let others raise them.
