2019-09-24

Police are looking for a Manhattan couple who attack women and snatch their bags.

She does the heavy hitting and lifting, and he talks big and flees after her score, cops said as they outlined three attacks by the couple.

The couple jumped an unidentified 24-year-old woman outside a church at 250 W. 26th St. in Chelsea just after 3 a.m. on Aug. 24.

Then they hit-and-split on a 30-year-old woman outside a brownstone at 257 W. 21st St. just after midnight on Aug. 25.

On Sept 16, they attacked a 48-year-old woman on a northbound No. 4 train around 3 p.m. before absconding at Grand Central station.

In all three attacks, she punched the female victims in the face before snatching purses containing cash, cell phones and credit cards, cops said.

She’s heavy-set and African-American and he’s slight, white, blonde, bearded and tattooed.

Anyone with information is asked asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
