RICHMOND (WRIC) – A group of teens have been violently beating, robbing and knocking down victims in the Randolph neighborhood.

Since October, police say at least four people have been attacked and robbed within a four block radius along the 1600 blocks of Idlewood Avenue, Kemper Street and in the 100 Block of South Allen Avenue.

"Normally there is two or three, sometimes four male juveniles knocking pedestrians or bicyclists to the ground and then begin punching them and kicking them and taking whatever they have in their possession," says Detective William Cutshall.

All of the victims are white males between the ages 18 and 21. One of them is a VCU student. Police say the assaults have become increasing violent.

"The injuries to the victims to are becoming more and more serious every time these robberies occur," Cutshall says. "I have seen everything unconscious victims to loss of teeth."

All of the violent robberies have occurred early in the evening between 8 and 10 p.m.

The teens are swiping iPods, cell phones and, in some cases, the victim's bikes.

Police are stepping up patrols in the area but are asking the public to be on the lookout and contact them with any information that could help them track down these teens.
