Two suspects have been arrested on robbery and assault charges in the attack on a 21-year-old woman on a Brooklyn street earlier this month, and authorities are looking for a third person of interest.
Officials say a 24-year-old Bronx man and a 24-year-old Brooklyn man were charged Thursday in the Oct. 2 attack. They say they're looking for a third man, 25-year-old Sanjae Douglas.
Surveillance video shows three suspects walking on Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights as the victim comes into the camera view from the opposite direction. As she walks past them, one suspect turns his head while another appears to grab her around the neck and slam her against the wall of a building.
That suspect repeatedly punches the woman in the face and stomach, then the other two suspects sidle up and start pawing at the woman, possibly looking for more valuables, before dragging her on the cement by her feet, her hood, and finally, her purse.
Eventually, one of the suspects pulls the woman's purse away and the three run off, leaving her lying on the street. Police said her cellphone was also stolen.
The woman was taken to the hospital with a broken nose and facial lacerations.
Anyone with information about Douglas' whereabouts is asked to call police.
