A teenage girl from the Bronx, NYC lured 3 guys over social network and had them robbed by her accomplices at knifepoint.
A 16-year-old girl started out her day by convincing a 15-year-old boy on Snapchat to meet with her on the fourth floor of a building on E. 175th St. near Marmion Ave. in Crotona about 7:30 p.m. July 11.
When the boy arrived, she claimed she had to go pee, and two men, who reported to be in their late teens or early twenties, came into the room as she left and robbed him at knifepoint, taking his iPhone 8, $70, and his sneakers.
Less than an hour later the teen lured a 22-year-old man to the same building. When the man arrived she claimed she needed to get something from the store.
Her accomplices jumped in again and robbed him of his Samsung Galaxy S7 and debit card.
It’s reported that 3 days later on July 19th the girl lured a 23-year-old man at the corner of Third Ave. and E. 173rd St. in Claremont about 11:20 p.m. The man was robbed of a Samsung Galaxy S9 and debit card.
The teen was arrested 2 days later. Her name wasn’t released because she’s being charged as a Juvenile.
Her accomplices have not been caught. Cops released a surveillance video in hopes the public can recognize them and call in:
Police are also looking to question another teenage girl described to be between 15 to 18 with a thin build, light complexion, and brown hair. She’s reported to have been wearing glasses, black jeans, a red tank top, sneakers, and a backpack.
