Teen girls climb fire escape to rob Bronx apartment: NYPD

The NYPD is searching for a group of teenage girls caught on video climbing a fire escape to break into and rob an apartment in the Bronx.

Police say that around 7:30 p.m. on April 11, the five young robbers scaled a building near Sheridan Avenue and East 168th Street in the Concourse section.

Authorities say the girls found an apartment with no one home and broke into it through a bedroom window. Once inside, they stole a Michael Kors purse, jewelry, a Macy's credit card, and roughly $500 in cash.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).  Police say all calls are strictly confidential.
