At 12:27 PM on Friday, June 7, a 66-year-old woman was pumping gas at a station on First Avenue and 96th Street. She had her back turned when a 20-year-old man crouched down by the passenger's side of her car and opened the passenger's side front door. He then reached in, took her purse, and sped off southbound on First Avenue in a white Nissan Ultima with North Carolina plates. Video of the incident is available. Three other men were seen in the Ultima. The items stolen from the woman's car included a Louis Vuitton bag valued at $1,200; a Louis Vuitton clutch worth $700; a Prada wallet costing $700; $600 in cash; a Prada makeup bag worth $300; prescription eyeglasses valued at $600; a Tiffany pen worth $100; jewelry valued at $100; Prada sunglasses worth $300; a Bloomingdale's gift certificate valued at $1,000; a Canon camera worth $200; a $125 Metro card; and her credit and debit cards. In all, a total of $6,625.
