The incident took place at around 2 a.m. on Sunday, October 2nd.
Officers responded to a 911 call of an assault in the Times Square subway station at W. 42nd St. and Broadway in Midtown Manhattan.
The NYPD is investigating a bizarre subway attack and robbery involving a group of women wearing tight full-body neon green leotards.
Two 19-year-old women had gotten into an argument with the group of leotard-wearing women. It escalated and victims were pushed and punched and then they were robbed of their phones, credit cards, wallet, and personal items.
A woman who recorded a video of the incident told FOX 5 News that the group of oddly dressed women flooded into the subway car.
"Those poor girls were like having to take on like 10 women and it bled into the car and no one really knew what was going on," the woman, who did not want to be identified, said. "It was so chaotic."
Another video of the attack showed the attackers getting on and off the train several times as it sat at the platform in the subway station. They continued the attacks over a period of several minutes until other passengers attempted to keep them from getting back on the train.
The women then took off from the train and have not been caught.
The victims were not seriously injured in the attack. A mother of one of the victims told the Post her daughter was out celebrating her 19th birthday before the attack.
