Alert for Teenage Subway Robber

The authorities are searching for the thief in a series of what has so far been seven robberies in Manhattan subway stations, the most recent of which occurred in the East Village at the intersection of Broadway and Houston Street about a week ago. The thief is believed to be a teenager who targets victims in subway stations before and after school hours, pulling out a knife or gun and then robbing them of their iPod or cell phone. So far all of his victims have been teenagers. — Rachel Ohm
