A calculating robber ripped off a mother and her 7-year-old daughter as they carried groceries into their Bronx apartment building last month, police said.
The culprit walked up to the 30-year-old woman and little girl as they entered the building near Grand Concourse and East 165th Street about 1:30 p.m. on August 22, according to the NYPD.
The robber asked the pair if they needed help carrying their bags of food. When the woman declined his offer, he ripped gold necklaces from her and her daughter’s necks—then ran off, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
