Dancing for donations was apparently too hard for this NYC busker.  A subway performer wasn’t asking – but demanding – on Friday when police say he robbed two boys after a performance.

Around 3:50 p.m. the two men were dancing inside the Union Square Subway Station while two 14-year-old boys watched.

After dancing, one performer lured the boys to the other side of the L line platform and forced them to give up an iPhone and $30.

The suspect told both boys to get on an incoming train and leave the station.

Police describe the suspect as a black male, between 17 and 19, approximately 5’08”, 170 lbs. with medium length black hair. He was last seen wearing a black hood jacket with white lettering and dark colored sweatpants.

    All the break dancers are racist and gang affiliated. They're a menace to all commuters and they steal, harass, and physically attack other subway performers on a regular basis.
