THE BRONX - Police are trying to track down a teenaged male and female duo who they say robbed women in two separate instances within the 52nd Precinct.

According to authorities, the pair first robbed a woman on May 20 as she was heading into the subway at 196th Street and the Grand Concourse. They say the teens struck again a week later on Briggs Avenue.

In both cases, cops say the female suspect approached the victim and forcibly removed a necklace. Her male accomplice also snatched the purse off the first victim.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
