Police are searching for a group of teenagers accused of beating up and robbing people at the Port Authority subway station. 

Police say the teens attacked three men last week. On Wednesday, Feb. 12, at about 1:30 a.m., a group of eight allegedly approached a 43-year-old man walking along a passageway from the A/C/E line to the Seventh Avenue line, then punched him, threw him to the ground and kicked him. 

They then stole his wallet, which contained his ID, debit card, MetroCard and $70 in cash, police said.

On Sunday, Feb. 16. just after 4 a.m., three teens from the same group attacked two other men within minutes, according to police. The suspects choked, punched and kicked the 41-year-old and 32-year-old victims, and then took their cell phones. 

One of the suspects has been identified as 18-year-old Keanu Kemp. 

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