Robberies in Central Park up 27% this month

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The NYPD is concerned about robberies in Central Park which are up 27 percent this month.

Police put out a picture of a person of interest in a robbery last Thursday night.

A man was choked until he passed out and then robbed in a wooded part of the park known as "The Ramble".

Investigators say he matches a sketch police put out last week.
