CLIFTON, N.J. -- Clifton detectives cracked the street robbery of a city man who had his glasses knocked off when he was punched in the face.
The 20-year-old victim was walking in the area of Lexington Avenue and Yereance Avenue around 1 a.m. Wednesday when the muggers attacked him, Lt. Robert Bracken said.
One of the robbers punched him the face, knocking him down and sending his glasses flying, Bracken said.
Then the trio took his cellphone and headphones before fleeing on foot.
Clifton firefighters treated the victim at the scene.
City Detectives Sean Connor and Alex Zamora got to work, meanwhile, developed suspects and contacted their Passaic colleagues.
Passaic police on Thursday arrested one of the three men sought: Marcos Lora, 19.
A short time later, Clifton detectives grabbed the other two: Isaiah Stevens, 18, and Tyssen Walker, 19.
Bracken thanked Passaic police for arresting Lora and assisting in the investigation.
