Three people were attacked with a brick and eggs and then robbed on their way to protest a drag queen event near Lincoln Center on Saturday morning, police officers said.
The three were heading south on Amsterdam Avenue at 11:06 a.m. when six people – in black hooded shirts and black masks – attacked them from behind.
One of the victims, a 31-year-old man, was punched and kicked while the attackers snatched his coat, phone and a sign, authorities said.
Meanwhile, an attacker picked up a 47-year-old woman and threw her to the ground as the attacker tried to steal her bag.
The third friend, a 27-year-old man, was pushed and hit while “trying to defend his friend,” police officers said.
The masked thieves then threw a brick and eggs at the protesters but missed, according to police.
No arrests were made. The attackers were described as a woman and five men, all wearing black hoodies and masks.
