The police are still looking for two people who allegedly put a woman in a chokehold to steal her purse last week.
The NYPD release two new surveillance photos of the suspects in the subway system. According to investigators, at around 11:50 p.m. on November 19th, a 24-year-old woman was walking at 110th Street and Lenox Avenue when she was "placed in a chokehold by the male suspect who threw her to the ground. The female suspect then took the victim's handbag, and both suspects fled the scene."
Police describes the suspects as being 18-20 years old. The victim's purse was later found on a subway platform. There's also surveillance video of the suspects in the park:
The victim, Lisa Karanz, told NBC New York that "she was taking her normal route home along the northernmost path of the park after getting off the subway at 110th Street near Lenox Avenue just before midnight. Then 'I was grabbed, put in a chokehold, brought to my knees, brought to the ground.'" She also believes the pair had been following her.
