BROOKLYN (PIX11) — Two women swiped a subway rider’s wallet at the Atlantic Avenue Terminal, police said Sunday.
The credit cards were then used for $1,100 in transactions at the Target inside the terminal. There was also cash and ID in the wallet.
The women approached the 38-year-old victim on northbound platform of the Q train on Nov. 16 around 4:20 p.m., officials said. One of the woman spoke to the victim in a language she didn’t understand while pointing at a cellphone. As that happened, the other woman bumped into the victim. The victim then got on the train and realized her wallet was gone.

The first woman was last seen wearing a tan jacket, a black shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers.
