Teen Was Sprung Without Bail In Robbery Case Days Earlier

  • The 16-year-old boy who was videoed punching a police officer in a Manhattan subway station was sprung without bail in a violent robbery case just a few days earlier.
  • The boy was freed on his own recognizance following his bust on Wednesday on allegations he and three others jumped a 49-year-old man on a Midtown street, punching the victim and running off with his cellphone.
  • Prosecutors with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office requested he be released with “intensive community monitoring” at his arraignment.
