Police found surveillance video of the suspects at several locations near the May 3 robbery.

All three suspects are Hispanic. One is bald, and one walks with a cane.

The victim, Modesto Cotto, is a father with 15 grandchildren and great grandchildren who drove a city bus for 23 years without a single incident.
