Video: Three Men Punch 21-Year-Old Woman in the Face in Brooklyn Robbery


The NYPD is looking for three assholes suspects in Brooklyn (never good to editorialize) who carried out a particularly brutal robbery in Prospect Heights earlier this month.

A recently posted video shows a female victim — police say she is 21 years old — being repeatedly punched in the face, thrown to the ground, and robbed of her backpack. All of this by not one, but three human beings twice her size.

The attack happened on October 2 at around 2:30 a.m., at the corner of Franklin Avenue and Prospect Place. The location isn’t far from the popular nightlife district stretching along Franklin, which means there may well have been witnesses around, even that late at night.

The video offers a pretty clear view of at least one suspect’s face.

If you have any tips or information, the NYPD asks that you call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS, or go to
