Young kids beat and rob man in Fort Greene

Police are hunting for a crew of kids — one as young as 8 years old — who bashed and robbed an adult man in Fort Greene in the early morning hours of Nov. 25.

The 30-year-old victim told cops he was on Willoughby Street between Ashland Place and Fleet Walk at around 12:30 am when the delinquents approached him and demanded his phone. The pint-sized punks then attacked the guy, punching him and throwing him to the ground before snatching his laptop bag, library book, and headphones, according to a report.

Authorities describe the suspects as two boys and one girl between 12 and 14 years old, and a boy between 8 and 9 years old.

Police ask anyone with information about the crime to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
