NEW YORK — Authorities released footage on Friday showing three women wanted in connection with a violent robbery that took place on a Brooklyn subway train last month.
According to officials, the incident occurred around 2 a.m. on Monday, May 22. A 27-year-old woman was riding a southbound A train near Utica Avenue and Fulton Street in Bedford Stuyvesant when she was approached by the three suspects.
The suspects initially engaged the victim in conversation, but then proceeded to physically assault her by punching her in the head and body. They subsequently stole her bag, which contained her wallet and cellphone.
After the robbery, the suspects fled the train in an unknown direction. Although the victim experienced pain and swelling as a result of the attack, she did not require medical attention.
Police have reported unauthorized charges made to the victim’s stolen banking cards following the incident.
