Officials said as the victim was walking, a group of Black males approached him, and one of them demanded that he give them his belongings.


The suspect with the knife took his wallet, and all of the males fled westbound on 18th Avenue, officials say.

According to officials, they later used the victim’s credit card at Still the Dub, a convenience store located in the 700 block of Springfield Avenue in Irvington.
