The NYPD is searching for three women wearing some conspicuous outfits for robbers. One of the suspects is seen on subway surveillance video wearing furry slippers. Another is seen wearing work out gear. The final suspect is covered head to toe wearing hats, hoods, face masks and rubber gloves.
The trio kicked off their two-hour robbery spree at around 1 am near Grand Central Station on November 20. Cops said the three women were passengers inside a taxi in Midtown. In the vicinity of 412 Lexington Avenue the trio began arguing with the 60-year-old cab driver. Cops said one of the suspects pulled out a gun as the others removed the cabbie’s cell phone.
The three robbers jumped out of the taxi and ran. Investigators said they ran into Grand Central Station and hopped on a train. Two hours later the robbers struck again in the Bronx.
At around 3 am, the trio was inside a cab in Fordham Heights. When the taxi reached the intersection of Ryer Avenue and East 180th Street, the suspects pulled out a gun and demanded property from the 59-year-old cab driver, cops said. The robber removed the victim’s cell phone and his wallet which contained $210. They then fled the cab.
Neither taxi driver was injured in the robberies.
The first suspect is described as a female who is 5 foot 7 with a light complexion and slim build. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, green top, green tights and black and white sneakers.
The second suspect is 5 foot 5, has a light complexion with red braids and a heavy build. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, black pants, and brown fur slippers.
