NEW YORK (PIX11) — Cops are looking for a duo accused of a string of robberies in upper Manhattan last year, with one even taking selfies with one of the stolen gadgets.

Police say the pair robbed a 55-year-old in Harlem last July, stealing a cellphone and money. Later that same day, they stole a 29-year-old man’s phone.

Then in September, they robbed a 17-year-old boy of his MetroCard and money outside his building in Harlem. Just a few days later, they stole a phone from an 18-year-old boy on West 117th Street. One of the suspects allegedly took a few selfies (posted above) with the stolen phone.

Both suspects are described at between 18- and 23-years-old and between 5’9″ and 6′ tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
