Two robbers around 40 to 50 years of age targeted a younger man aboard an Uptown No. 6 train on Sat., Feb. 8, police said.
The train was inside the Brooklyn Bridge subway station at 10:43 p.m., when the duo approached the straphanger and demanded his property. They then forcibly removed his cell phone and wallet, containing about $40 cash, and fled the station on foot.
The victim suffered a cut on his arm during the confrontation. E.M.S. medics responded and transported him to Bellevue Hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released.
The two suspects were both last seen wearing all dark clothing.
Police provided surveillance photos and video of the alleged individuals from the vicinity of the incident, taken after the incident.
