Police are looking for three suspects in connection to a robbery pattern throughout Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan.
The last reported incident dates back to July 24 in the Bronx. Police say two unidentified men got into a Lyft vehicle and asked for the driver's phone to change their destination.

Police are also searching for another man in a separate incident.
Police say the trio is behind more than 40 incidents in which they order Lyft cars and pull the same stunt.
