In a dis­turb­ing inci­dent, a man in Brook­lyn robbed two sis­ters of their gold neck­laces while assault­ing the younger girl. The NYPD is search­ing for the suspect.

The rob­bery occurred on Wednes­day near East­ern Park­way and Ralph Avenue in Crown Heights. The sus­pect, believed to be 25–40 years old, con­front­ed the girls in their apart­ment build­ing’s lob­by and demand­ed their jewelry.

“He grabbed me by the neck,” the 14-year-old girl told ABC 7. “I only looked at my sis­ter, and she was screaming.”

The sus­pect choked the 6‑year-old girl while steal­ing her neck­lace, then took the old­er sis­ter’s jew­el­ry before flee­ing. Both girls received treat­ment at Mai­monides Med­ical Cen­ter and are recovering.

The sus­pect is described as approx­i­mate­ly 5 feet 8 inch­es tall with dark hair in a pony­tail. He was car­ry­ing a Tar­get shop­ping bag and lat­er donned a gray hood­ed sweatshirt.

The NYPD released images of the sus­pect and is seek­ing the pub­lic’s help in iden­ti­fy­ing and appre­hend­ing him. This crime has shocked the com­mu­ni­ty, and author­i­ties urge any­one with infor­ma­tion to come forward.
