Cops are looking for three crooks who attacked and robbed a woman on a Manhattan street this week.
According to police, at 8 p.m. on Jan. 19 a 40-year-old woman was walking on West 10th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues while talking on the phone. She was approached by three unknown women who struck her in the back of the head with a glass bottle, causing the victim to fall into a flower box.
The crooks then swiped the victim’s iPhone 11 Pro from her hands and fled the scene westbound on West 10th Street. The victim suffered a minor injury to her head but refused medical attention at the scene.
