Visitors to Central Park remain on edge following three violent muggings over the weekend.
The robberies are unrelated, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.
And police have just released surveillance video of one incident, in which more than a dozen teens who police say mugged a young couple, CBS2’s Matt Kozar reported.
In the first incident, more than a dozen teenagers approached the couple at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night at Heckscher Playground near 62nd Street and West Drive.
One of the muggers threatened the couple with a knife and possibly a Taser, and a female victim was punched in the face.
