Police are looking for three women who allegedly robbed a 21-year-old in Jamaica last month.

On Sunday, Aug. 31, around 2:30 p.m., three unidentified women arrived to Anderson Road and Sidway Place to purchase products posted for sale on social media by a 21-year-old woman, according to police.

But instead of purchasing the products, the three woman began to punch the 21-year-old, according to the NYPD. The three women then stole the victim’s cellphone and purse, eventually running off in an unknown direction, cops said.

The victim did not report any injuries.

Police released photos of two of the women they believe to have robbed the 21-year-old.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
