An attempt to steal pieces of jewelry worn by 2 Jewish women in Crown Heights on Sunday evening has resulted in the swift and harmless arrest of the predators.
Three black men attacked and tried to snatch valuables worn by the women while walking on Brooklyn Avenue, leading the women to scream loudly and bring bystanders to call for help.
Shmira volunteer security patrol was able to arrive immediately and follow the attempted thieves to a bus stop on Utica Avenue where they boarded a city bus.
A Shmira volunteer was able to flag down an NYPD vehicle whose officers went on to pull over the bus. The predators ran but after a brief foot pursuit, all three males were placed under arrest.
Police said they will be charged with attempted robbery. They said the males range in age from 17 to 19 years of age, and live in the confines of the 67th NYPD precinct.
