New Rochelle Police Capt. Cosmo Costa said that at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 3, a man was walking near Bonnefoy Place when he was approached by three African-American teens dressed in all black.
The three teens were between the ages of 15 and 17, Costa said, with two of them brandishing large knives. No other descriptive information was provided.
It is alleged that the teens pushed the man to the ground and robbed him of $1,300 in cash before fleeing on foot westbound on Bonnefoy Place toward Church Street.
