THE BRONX — Police are looking for four teens connected to a series of robberies in the Bronx.

Eight known incidents were reported within the month of November occurring around the Allerton section of the Bronx — the latest incident occurring as recent as Monday.

In the latest incident, the four teens surrounded a 15-year-old male victim inside the Allerton Avenue 2/5 train station around 5:35 p.m.

Police said one of the teens took the victim’s headphones and fled while the remaining individuals tried stealing the victim’s cellphone.

The victim fought the teens off and kept his phone.
