The New York Police Department is searching for five teenage girls accused of breaking into a Bronx apartment by climbing up the building’s fire escape.
The NYPD released an 18-second video clip from last Sunday night showing the teens trying to access a building’s fire escape near Sheridan Avenue and East 168th Street in the Concourse Village section of the borough. The girls are described as being between 16 and 18-years-old, CBS New York reports.
Authorities said the girls used the fire escape to break in through a bedroom window. They allegedly stole $500 in cash, a Michael Kors purse, jewelry, and a credit card. No one was hurt during the commission of the robbery.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477 or for Spanish, dial 1-888-577-4782.
