Six people are wanted by police in connection with 10 reported robberies across east and north London.
The Met has released images and details of most wanted robbery suspects as police appeal for the public’s help to find them.
Robbery is the biggest contributor to youth violence in London, with 24 percent of such incidents being knife enabled, according to Scotland Yard's 2022/23 data up to May 31.
Police say tackling violent crime is their top priority and the Met is focusing its resources in hotspot areas.
In 2021/22, robbery offences reduced by 39 per cent with 16,440 fewer victims, data shows.
Det Ch Supt Lee Hill, of the Met's violent crime taskforce, said: "With summer around the corner, we are increasing our efforts to bear down on robbery.
"There are dedicated, proactive units working to locate offenders across London."
