It was a frightening start to the school week for several students heading to school on Staten Island Monday. Now, police are looking for a knife-wielding teenage suspect who is robbing other kids.

At least seven students were held up on their way to Monsignor Farrell High School in Oakwood.

Authorities say the attacks happened between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. In each incident, police say the suspect would approach the victim, all between the ages of 15 and 17, display the knife and demand the student's cash and cell phone.

No injuries were reported. The thief reportedly made his getaway in a gold sedan, possibly a Nissan.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 18 years old, with short brown hair. He is approximately 5-foot-8 and 200 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
