At 4:55 a.m. on Tuesday, July 30, a 64-year-old woman was on the subway platform at Avenue of the Americas and West Broadway when two boys, aged 13 and 15, threatened her and attempted to take her handbag by force. The 13-year-old said, "I have a knife, I will kill them all!" while he tried to take the woman's handbag. The woman told police that the boys did not actually display a knife.
