The New York Police Department is asking the public’s help in tracking down 12 teenage girls who assaulted a couple of 16-year-olds on a Bronx subway in March. Prior to the assaults, the pack of teens stole the french fries one of the female victims was eating (see video of the assault released by police after the jump).
