NEW YORK - Police are searching for a group of teenage boys involved in robbing a number of Manhattan restaurants.

Surveillance video shows one of the robberies last month at a restaurant on West 54th Street.

Investigators say three of the boys distracted an employee while one took the cashbox from behind the counter.

Six more similar incidents followed this month.

In each case police say the robbers distracted workers and then took money and their cell phones.

The group ranges from 14 to 18 years old.
