NEW YORK (WABC) -- NYPD investigators are looking for three bandits for a string of robberies, include three inside subway stations in Manhattan.
The first attack happened back on February 8, when one of the suspects tried to take a 37-year-old woman's purse as she exited the R train at Broadway and 28th Street.
The following week, a 75-year-old was punched in the face by two of thugs who made off with some cash in his pockets. This mugging happened on West 68th Street on the evening of February 17th.
Six days later, all three suspects mugged a 42-year-old man on West 92nd Street at 1:35 in the morning.

They struck twice on Monday, March 7. A 24-year-old on the platform of the 168th Street and Washington Heights subway station was punched in the face and robbed just before 7:00 p.m.
Two hours later, they grabbed a 27-year-old man from behind at 310 West 98 Street, threw him to the ground and ran off with his cell phone.
The most recent incident happened on Tuesday, March 8 when two of the suspects mugged a 25-year-old man walking into the 110 Street & Cathedral Parkway subway station.
