An 84-year-old Asian grandmother got her necklace stolen right off her neck at her own home in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York. According to ABC 7 News New York, the incident occurred on Saturday, April 17th around 2 pm on 67th Street and 8th Avenue. The grandmother said she was sitting outside her home when two women walked up to her.
Instagram user tway967 who claimed to be a grandchild of the elder posted surveillance footage of the incident on Instagram. The two women can be seen coming out of a white SUV and walking up to the house. The women then swap a fake necklace for the grandmother’s real gold necklace even though the grandmother refuses.
The Asian elder was not hurt. Police are looking for the two women.
