The NYPD is looking for a pair of women suspected of swiping up to $10,000 in cash and jewels from a victim who lives in the 104th Precinct who the pair approached on the street.
The 33-year-old victim told police she was walking in front of 223 Wyckoff Ave. in Bushwick when two other women asked her for directions and showed her a piece of white paper at around 12:10 p.m. on Oct. 19.
This is the last thing the victim recalls before she found herself walking along St. Nicholas Avenue between Bleecker Street and Greene Avenue, according to police. Authorities did not elaborate on why there is a lapse in the victim’s memory.
When she returned to her home she discovered that a drawer in which she kept $8,000 was open; the cash was missing, along with about $2,000 in jewelry, police said.
The victim told NYPD that whoever entered her home had left behind a yellow bag, she remembered seeing one of the women who approached her on the street carrying it.
The victim reported the incident to the police at 3:10 p.m. the same day.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information on the two individuals are asked to call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723 or Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200.
