NYC Central Park Mugger May Have Been 10 Years Old (Video)

Muggings in New York City's Central Park are not unusual, but the ages of two suspects recently accused of attempted robbery are raising eyebrows.

Two children allegedly tried to mug a woman in New York City's Central Park on Monday night (video below).

One suspect is a black male, 10 to 11 years old, while the second suspect is a black female, 12 to 14 years old, according to the NYPD.

The unidentified woman, 38, was approached by the girl, who demanded her cell phone.

When the woman refused, the young boy grabbed her purse but couldn't get it away, reports

Eventually, the two children and a third person, approximately 14 years old, ran off – but not before their pictures were taken by a surveillance camera. Those photos were released today.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
