West New York Police arrest three thugs who attacked and robbed a Union City man.
James Blanks, 19, and Joshua Rivera, 18, of Jersey City and an unnamed juvenile approached the victim at 58th Street and Bergenline Avenue.
They hit him on the back of the head and face with closed fists — then took his wallet, watch, passport and cell phone.
All three denied assaulting the victim.
Officers recovered the wallet, watch (which Blanks claimed his grandmother gave him) and passport, but couldn’t find the cell phone.
Blanks and Rivera were charged with robbery and the juvenile was transported to the Hudson County Juvenile Detection Center.
