Two women beat, rob victims in their 60s at NYC subway station
A vicious attack occurred at the West 4 Street subway hub in Greenwich Village last month, according to the New York City Police Department. The incident, which happened on May 26 at around 8 p.m., involved two young women who beat and robbed a 64-year-old man and a 67-year-old woman inside the elevator of the subway station.
The NYPD stated that the women approached the elderly victims before punching them multiple times in a brutal assault. One of the suspects, a woman wearing bright red pants and a dark T-shirt, attempted to rob the man of his cell phone after he tried to photograph her and her accomplice. The attack was ultimately unsuccessful in stealing evidence, as the NYPD released surveillance footage of the suspects.
