WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn (PIX11) — One of three teenage boys punched a 6-year-old girl before the group stole her scooter in Brooklyn late last month, police said on Friday.
The girl was on her razor scooter at the intersection of Throop Avenue and Barlett Street around 6 p.m. on July 28 when the three boys approached her, police said. One of them punched her while the others took her scooter — valued at $30 — before running off, according to officials. The girl was treated by EMS at the scene.
Police asked for help in finding the three boys, who were described as between 14 and 16 years old. The NYPD sent out a photo of the teenagers.
