Police are asking the public’s assistance in identifying the two males seen in the above video in connection with a robbery that occurred earlier this month in front of 467 Prospect Avenue, on the border of South Slope and Windsor Terrace.
The two males approached the 37-year-old female victim from behind at approximately 10pm on Monday, July 3, according to the police. One suspect covered the victim’s head with a shirt while the second suspect grabbed her wallet, which contained $300, and a cellphone from a bag she was carrying.
They then pushed the victim to the ground and fled on foot westbound on Prospect Avenue toward 8th Avenue, police say. The victim suffered a cut on her right elbow but refused medical attention.
The first suspect is described as a black male, wearing a light-colored t-shirt, black Adidas pants, and dark sneakers. He was carrying a shirt or hooded sweatshirt over his shoulder.
The second suspect is described as a black male, wearing a blue t-shirt, dark shorts, and black sneakers.
The surveillance photo and video above show the two suspects walking on Prospect Park West, between Windsor Place and Prospect Avenue, just before the robbery.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
