Search for 'selfie' robbers

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Getting a description on two cell phone robbers was easy for the NYPD.

They're now searching for the men who they say were responsible for three cell phone robberies and took pictures of themselves with one of the stolen phones.

The photos were uploaded to the owner's iCloud account where they were accessed by the NYPD. Cops released the photos from the data-sharing system in the hope of catching the men.

Cops say the men robbed an 18-year-old man on 7th Ave. near W 117th St. in Manhattan on Sept. 24.

A short time later, they took the photos.

They are also responsible for two additional robberies on Sept. 19 and on July 29.

If you recognize the men, you're encouraged to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers Program:
