NEW YORK - The NYPD released security camera video footage showing four women suspected of robbing a nail salon in the Bronx after arguing and attacking one of the workers.
The incident happened about 5:40 p.m. inside Estefy Nail Salon on Westchester Avenue in the Soundview section on Saturday Sept. 2, 2021, police said.
Authorities said the women verbally fought with the nail tech about her service and then attacked her.
"The female individuals then grabbed a gel nail lamp and as they were exiting the store one of the females bit the victim in her right hand, stunned her right arm with a stun gun and began punching her multiple times in the face when she attempted to stop them from leaving with property," the NYPD said in a release.
The four women got away but police obtained security video showing them walking on a sidewalk after the attack.
Individual #1 is described as a medium-skinned female, with black hair and braids and last seen wearing a white "Adidas" t-shirt, gray sweatpants, multi-color sandals, black face mask, and carrying a black purse.
Individual #2 is described as a medium-skinned female, with black long hair and last seen wearing a black t-shirt with a white picture in front of it, blue jeans, and white sneakers.
Individual #3 is described as a medium-skinned female, with black long hair with braids and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt with cartoons drawings in front of it, blue jeans, green crock sandals, and carrying a gray round purse.
Individual #4 is described as a light-skinned female, with black hair in a ponytail and was last seen wearing a long-sleeve white shirt with dark blue and burgundy stripes in front of it, black pants, black sneakers, and carrying a black purse.
The salon worker was taken to Jacobi Hospital in stable condition.
