A trio of women beat up another woman for her cellphone last week, and police are still searching for the perpetrators.
According to the NYPD, it happened last Tuesday in a park (probably the Morris Garden) at East 181st Street and Morris Avenue in the Bronx. Just after 6 p.m., police say three women "acting in concert, repeatedly punched and assaulted" a 26-year-old woman with a stick before fleeing with her phone. The victim had numerous injuries.
The first suspect is described as a teenager approximately 5'2", 90 lbs., with long brown hair, and was wearing a brown tank top and black pants (who seems to be carrying a child). The second suspect is described as another teenager, approximately 100 lbs., with brown hair, and was wearing a sleeveless pink button-down shirt and black pants. The third suspect is described as a woman in her 30s, approximately 5'4", 220 lbs., with brown hair in a pony-tail, and was wearing a red t-shirt and black pants.
