Cops Release Photo Of Woodside Mug Suspects

By Liz Goff
Police in Woodside are searching for two thugs who mugged a 33-year-old man on September.

Cops said the victim was walking along 61st Street at about 3:35 a.m. on September 11 when the suspects grabbed him from behind.

One of the suspects held the victim’s arms behind his back while his accomplice rifled through his pockets, police said.

The suspects grabbed the victim’s wallet, credit cards and cash and fled in an unknown direction.

Police last week released a surveillance photo of the suspects (see photo) that shows the two men trying to use one of the stolen credit cards.
