NEW YORK (AP) - Police are questioning five people after a man was punched and two women were robbed in Central Park.

The alleged incident occurred around 5 a.m. Monday at East 96th Street and Fifth Avenue outside the park.

According to WABC-TV (https://bit.ly/1myZcz8 ), a 31-year-old man was approached by a group of teens who allegedly demanded money before punching him.

Nothing was taken from the victim who was not seriously hurt.

Police say the suspects then walked into the park where they came across two female joggers.



They say the teens stole an iPhone from one victim and an iPod from the other before fleeing.

Police later took five people in for questioning.
