April 28, 2021 By Michael Dorgan

A 16-year-old girl was beaten and robbed by three people while she was inside her apartment at Queensbridge Houses last month.

The victim had let her boyfriend into her apartment, located at 41-05 10th St., on March 27 at around 5:45 p.m. before three female suspects busted into the unit shortly afterward.

The 16-year-old, who had been alone in the apartment until her boyfriend arrived, was chased into the bathroom by the three assailants who caught her and allegedly started punching and kicking her. They then stole her Apple iPhone XR, according to police.

The suspects then fled the scene on foot towards the 21st Street–Queensbridge subway station, police said. The victim’s boyfriend left with the three suspects, although police did not say whether he was in on the robbery.

The 16-year-old was later treated at Mount Sinai Queens for minor head injuries and has since been released. No weapons were used during the robbery, police said.

The victim did not know the three female suspects, police said.

The NYPD released CCTV footage from inside the apartment building which captured the three female suspects walking up stairs to the apartment before the incident. It also showed them leave the building, with the victim’s boyfriend.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols outside Queens Borough Hall Monday, Jan. 30 after Nichols’ death at the hands of police officers in Memphis, Tenn., made national headlines for the brutality in which the officers beat him.

Almost immediately after news broke about Nichols’ death, the Memphis police officers who beat him to death were fired and charged with murder. The police department released the body cam footage of the fatal beating on Jan. 27, but many people, including some at the vigil, have refused to watch it due to its extremely graphic nature.
