Around 2:15 a.m., a knife-wielding man and woman took his bag — which contained his wallet, $1,000 in cash and three credit cards, officials said. The victim followed the pair through the East 149th Street subway station. Then three men took the victim’s phone, MetroCard, headphones and jacket. One of the men punched the victim.

No arrests have been made.
