Two people who mugged a 26-year-old woman in Bed-Stuy last week may have had three other accomplices, police reported.
Police are looking to question five people — four men and one woman — who police said were captured on surveillance video following the victim before the mugging and running away from the scene after the crime.
The victim reported being mugged by just two people, however. She was ordered at gunpoint to lay down on the ground, police said. She complied, and her attackers took her purse and iPhone and ran off.
Police said the incident occurred near Pulaski Street and Tompkins Avenue in Brooklyn. They are requesting that anyone with information call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
