Teen Duo Who Rob and Run Sought by Police

The New York City Police Department is asking the public for help in finding a dangerous teen duo who’ve robbed two women in the Bronx, one of the victims, a mother pushing a stroller.


On Sunday, May 20, at 8pm, a 25-year-old mother, walking down the steps to the D line at the Kingsbridge Road subway station, was approached by a female suspect, and a male suspect who snatched the woman’s purse which was draped over her baby’s stroller, according to police.  The teens then ran out of the station, heading east.


Eight days later, at 7 pm, police say the same suspects assaulted and robbed a 47-year-old woman in the lobby of her building at 2770 Briggs Avenue.  The female suspect followed the victim into her building and ripped her chain off her neck, while the other suspect remained outside, acting as a lookout, according to police.


One suspect is described as a light skinned female Hispanic, 15 to 17 years of age, with blonde and red hair, and last seen wearing a pink and peach shirt and capri pants.  Her male accomplice is described as Black, also 15 to 17 years of age, with short black hair, and last seen wearing a black T-shirt and jeans.


Anyone with information regarding the identity or whereabouts of these two suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
