The two suspects then punched him repeatedly and held him down while they stole $30 in cash, police said. They ran from the area and met up a short time later.

The victim suffered injuries to his face and hands, police said.

The robbery happened the same day that police arrested another suspect wanted in connection with six Manhattan muggings.
