Police are looking for a teenage boy who allegedly robbed a 12-year-old girl of her groceries and $3 in Coney Island on Monday afternoon.

According to police, the thief approached the girl—who has been identified as Keiri Quintero—outside a grocery store around 3:30 p.m., grabbed her by the neck, and pulled her into an alley next to 2834 Stillwell Avenue where he punched her in the face.

"I punched him in the stomach," Quintero told the Post. "He said, 'Give me everything you got!'" He then grabbed her grocery bag, which had cupcakes and cilantro she had bought for her mother, and she gave him the $3 she had in change.

"I yelled and kicked him in his private parts. He got angry and hit me in the face," Quintero said. According to the Daily News, two neighborhood women rushed to her aid. One of the women's husbands tried to catch the mugger, but he wasn't able to.

"He deserves to be in jail, because I don't want him to hurt other people," Quintero told ABC 7. Her 14-year-old brother, Alex Quintero, now goes on grocery runs for the family.

Quintero described the suspect to the News as pimply, dressed in all black, and carrying a red, white, and black backpack. Police described him as being approximately 15 years old.
