Oct. 7, 2021 By Allie Griffin

A crook on a pink butterfly bicycle stole a 10-year-old girl’s phone as she was walking to school in North Corona Wednesday morning.

The heartless thief biked up to the girl near 102-02 34th Ave. and snatched the phone right from the girl’s hand at around 8 a.m., police said.

He grabbed the phone from the girl’s hand with such force that the 10-year-old had to have her hand treated by a school nurse.

Suspect (NYPD)

He biked off southbound on 102nd Street. Police described the bicycle as pink and white with butterflies on it.

Police released surveillance footage of the suspect from a bodega located by the crime scene.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
