Police have released a sketch of an alleged serial cell phone robber targeting teenagers throughout the northern section of Queens, in some cases threatening them with a gun.
The suspect typically approaches his victims and requests to see their cell phones, according to investigators. If the victim does not comply with his demand, he shows a gun and takes the phone by force.
The 11 victims so far range in age from 14 to 16, according to police. The robberies, spanning from mid-June to as recently as Aug. 31, have occurred in northern sections of Queens including Richmond Hill, Hollis, Flushing and Fresh Meadows neighborhoods.
No one has been hurt in the robberies, police said.
Not sure how Richmond Hill or Hollis could be considered "northern Queens" but this is the mainstream media for you.
