Scissors-Wielding Teen Girls Arrested for Muggings in Uptown Park

Two 15-year-old girls threatened to stab people with scissors if they didn't hand over their cell phones and wallets in a Washington Heights park, police said.

The teen muggers were part of a group of four youths that police said pulled scissors on a man near the Fort Tryon Park playground just after 2 p.m. on June 2. According to police, the victim, 47, was in the park when he was approached by two males and two females. One of the males eyed the man's iPhone, going so far as to say "nice phone" before demanding he give it up, police said.

Just minutes later, the group confronted a 24-year-old woman sitting on a park bench, with one of the girls placing the victim in a chokehold while the thieves rummaged through her purse and stole her makeup, keys, and wallet with $450 inside of it, police said.

Three other victims said they were mugged then by teen girls in the 33rd and 34th Precincts, according to police. An investigation is ongoing.

The girls, whose names are being withheld by DNAinfo because of their age

I take it their names are not Tiffany and Heather.

"The girls, whose names are being withheld by DNAinfo because of their age.."

Why? Why can't names be released when the perps are charged with an adult crime?

Can you imagine what would happen if this took place in a red state?

“Gimme yo’ money or I stab you wit dis!”

“No, you lay face down on the ground or I will shoot you with this!”

"investigation is ongoing."

Isn't there always?

Investigations are in lieu of actually doing something effective.

I don’t understand it either. But then again, I can’t stand cities. I’m rural/ small town all the way.
