The victim’s bag contained $100 in cash, an iPhone, credit cards and a driver’s license, police said. One of the suspects is a woman between 25 and 30 years of age last seen wearing a dark coat and black shoes. She was carrying an orange book bag and had the victim’s purse, the NYPD said.

The two other suspects were both men, between 25 to 30 years of age. One of the suspects was last seen wearing a white baseball cap, black sneakers and a dark colored coat. The third suspect was wearing a blue jean jacket, gray shirt, black jeans and brown shoes, according to police.
