NEW YORK – Police are trying to find a group of people accused of robbing a fruit stand worker in the South Bronx.
It happened around 1:30 p.m. on May 28 at the corner of Griffin Place and East 149th Street.
Police say three people approached a fruit stand, and one person purchased a mango.
When the fruit stand worker pulled out his wallet to give the individual change, the three individuals allegedly punched him in the face and body, then one grabbed the wallet.

The victim, a 54-year-old man, was taken to a local hospital to be treated for a bloody nose and bruising.
