Five on one

A quarrelling quintet surrounded and robbed a 14-year-old boy during an altercation on Fourth Avenue on Jan. 27, police said.

The victim, a resident of Fifth Avenue, said that he was walking near 79th Street with a friend at around 5:45 pm when the five thugs stopped them and encircled them.

“Run your pockets,” one of the thugs said.

Fearing for his safety, the victim handed over his iPod Touch, wallet, cellphone and $3, and the thieves, all 16-year-olds, fled.
