Police are looking for a pair of thieves who allegedly stole a bracelet worth $1,500 from a 65-year-old woman in Woodside last month.

The suspects—a male and female—were riding a gray Dodge SUV on Sept. 12 at around 6:40 p.m. when they pulled up in the vicinity of 59th Street and 37th Avenue and asked the victim for directions, police said.

The female suspect, who was sitting in the rear passenger seat with the window down, placed bracelets and rings on the victim’s arms and fingers while the victim was providing them with instructions. The man was the get-away driver.

The female perpetrator then allegedly snatched the victim’s bracelet from her left arm before the pair fled the scene in the vehicle southbound on 59th Street, cops said.

The NYPD released video footage of the alleged incident.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.

They are gypsies and they have been perfecting their craft of stealing for a long time.

With open streets a lot of people have been asking for directions to get to places. Cars with gps do not recognize that certain streets are closed to cars. Traffic and getting around is chaotic and criminals know this. They also know that in neighborhoods like Western Queens bystanders are not doing anything unless a cop is trying to make an arrest. A person was chocked a 16 yr old female diner on Ditmars blvd. in Astoria last week and got away. No one did anything and Ditmars is filled with young adults. Please be careful and at least watch out for the elderly and children.

The video is so weird. Like the lady in the car was preforming some ritual. Both the victims hands were in the car at some point and in the end they seem to be greeting each other goodbye blowing kisses.

This complete paragraph doesn't make any sense...

Why would they put jewelry ON the victim??? Only to then ‘steal’ it back???

Kinda hard to steal your own shit.

Oldest trick in the book!! Don’t ever walk over to a car to give strangers directions. Especially since thugs already have GPS so it’s more than obvious they are up to no good

I understand where you are coming from

But gps isn’t that great, especially in Queens where we have two or more streets with the same number. I once had a woman who worked for my mom come and pick up a daybed I was giving her. My neighbor and I had to literally drive to her location to direct them back because she just couldn’t find my exact address. They sent her to the other side of northern boulevard on the same street/same number address.

No other area I’m the world has addresses as Queens and it’s inane.
