The NYPD is offering a reward to anyone with information about three teenage girls who allegedly robbed two male vendors at knifepoint in New York City near Yankee Stadium, telling them to “go back to Mexico.”

Three teenage girls suspected of robbing Bronx vendors at knifepoint while yelling racial slurs

On August 12, around 3:30 pm, three teen girls robbed two vendors, 37 and 38, who were selling clothing to try and support their families. The girls approached the vendors and began yelling racial slurs about Mexicans, before punching the vendors and pulling out a knife. The teens proceeded to steal hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise.

The Bronx street vendors, neither of which wish to be identified, are now apprehensive about returning to work. One of the vendors told NBC New York about how he reacted to the robbery, “I don’t say nothing, I don’t do nothing.”

“I’m working for my family. He’s working for his family. And you know, it’s very important for me and he,” reported one of the vendors, adding, “You don’t know why they do it.”

Some of the incident was captured on a cellphone camera, and a photograph of the three women has been released as the NYPD continues to search for them, offering a $3,500 reward for information.
