Three men were taken into custody in connection with the muggings in Riverside Park last week, while a fourth is still being sought.

Police say 22-year-old Christian Torres, 19-year-old Kevin Watt and 18-year-old Carlos Rivera were arrested Wednesday night at a Dunkin Donuts in Washington Heights.

Torres and Watt were charged with robbery, assault and grand larceny. Rivera was charged with possession of stolen property.

A $2,000 reward was being offered in connection with the mugging of a 21-year-old man.

The victim's head was covered with a bag and struck with an object and his belongings stolen.

He suffered a serious head injury.

A few blocks away, police say a homeless man was beaten, but refused to give up his bag.
