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:

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
