Over the past several weeks, police have been investigating reports of numerous robberies targeting Apple AirPods and other headphones across Manhattan and Queens.
Pattern of Robberies Emerges
According to police reports, there have been at least 20 such robberies fitting a similar pattern over the last month alone. The incidents have occurred in neighborhoods across Manhattan, including the Upper East and West Sides, Midtown, and Lower Manhattan, as well as in Queens.
In most cases, the victims have been approached on the street by one or more suspects who demand they hand over their Apple AirPods or other headphones. Several of the incidents have turned violent, with victims sustaining injuries after resisting the robbers.
The NYPD has linked many of these robberies based on descriptions of the perpetrators and methods used. In several cases, the suspects have been described as groups of male teenagers, suggesting an organized robbery ring may be behind many of the incidents.
Police Seek Public Assistance
The NYPD has released images and video footage capturing persons of interest wanted for questioning in many of the headphone robbery incidents across Manhattan and Queens over the past month.
Investigators are appealing to the public for any information that may help identify or locate the individuals responsible for the rash of Apple headphone robberies.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS. Calls are kept confidential.
