The NYPD is looking for two black children, one as young as 10, who attempted to mug a woman in Central Park
A 38-year-old woman was in the area of Fifth Avenue and East 107th Street when she was approached by a black girl demanding her cell phone, police said. When the woman refused, a second black child grabbed her pocketbook, but was unable to pull it away. The children and a third person ran off. Surveillance photos of the trio have been released. Police describe suspect number one as a black girl, 12 to 14, approximately 4 feet 10 inches tall, and wearing a black jacket with a red hood and a braided pony tail. The second suspect is described as a 10- to 11-year-old black boy, 4 feet 5 inches tall, and wearing a beige striped fleece. A third person wanted for questioning was wearing a purple shirt. She is described by police as black and approximately 14 years old.
