Police arrested three teenage girls in the Jan. 19 bottle-bash robbery of a woman in Greenwich Village.
The incident occurred at 8 p.m. at W. 10th St. between Fifth and Sixth Aves. The trio are accused of approaching a 40-year-old woman from behind as she was walking and talking on her cell phone, and hitting her on the head with a glass bottle. After being struck, the victim fell into a flower box and the girls stole her iPhone 11-Pro from her hand, according to police.
Although the woman sustained a minor head injury, she refused medical attention at the scene.
The youngest girl, 14, was charged with assault, plus robbery, criminal possession of a weapon (the bottle) and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Her sidekicks, ages 15 and 16, were both charged with robbery.
It’s generally the Police Department’s policy not to release the names of arrestees who are minors.
