Police are looking for a group of teenage boys who violently robbed a 25-year-old man in North Corona earlier this month.
Ten teenagers, who cops say are between 15 and 18 years old, approached the man on Nov. 5 at about 12:25 a.m. and forced him against the wall of a building located at 35-30 103rd St. They took his wallet with $20 cash inside and his Beats headphones, police said.
The victim attempted to take back his belongings at which point the group began punching him. They fled the scene with the wallet and headphones, cops said.
The 25-year-old sustained pain and swelling to his face, but refused medical attention.
