A pack of teens targeted a cyclist in Central Park and ripped off his ride, police said Saturday.

The teens, who were riding bikes and skateboards, surrounded the 33-year-old man at 11:15 p.m. April 13 as he rode his e-bike along the parkís East Drive, the NYPD said Saturday.

The cyclist fell after one of the teens forced a skateboard in front of him, police said.

Another teen went through the victimís pants pockets and grabbed his cellphone before the group fled with the e-bike.

The group was last seen climbing over the turnstiles on the southbound side of the PATH station at 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue heading toward New Jersey, according to cops, who released surveillance video of the group Saturday.

Major crimes in Central Park including robbery and grand larceny are up 11 percent through April 21, with 10 incidents so far this year, compared to nine for the same period in 2018, NYPD crime statistics show.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:41 AM.
