Harlem Muggers Accidentally Send Selfies to NYPD

Two men accidentally sent selfies to police from a cell phone they stole during a series of Harlem muggings, according to the NYPD.

After allegedly demanding the phone from an 18-year-old walking down the street and threatening him with a fake gun, the duo took selfies and uploaded them to a photo-sharing account flagged by police.

The photo shows the two suspects wearing black Lacoste hoodies.

Police have tied the most recent robbery to three other incidents involving stolen cell phones, money and a MetroCard.

The pair is said to have used a real gun in one incident, though none of the victims in the muggings were injured.

The suspects are in their late teens or early 20s and stand between 5-foot-9 and 6-feet tall.
