According to the police, a woman from Texas who was vacationing in New York City was held in a headlock while she and another woman were robbed at knifepoint in midtown Manhattan early on Sunday morning.
According to the New York Post, the women, who have not been identified, were walking at the intersection of West 45th Street and 11th Avenue at approximately 12:30 a.m. when they were confronted by two men who demanded that they hand over their things.
During the course of the robbery, according to the reports filed by the police, one of the perpetrators flashed a knife and snatched a pocketbook as well as a cell phone from one of the victims.
The second victim, who authorities noted was a tourist, was held in a headlock but did not have any of her things taken.
The police only received a description of one of the suspects, who was described as a Hispanic male wearing a black hat, black jacket, white shirt, and black pants. The police had no other information about the suspects.
Neither of the women was injured, though the purse was emptied, according to police.
