DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN (WABC) — Police are looking for two women who robbed another woman at the Atlantic Avenue subway station in Brooklyn.

Both suspected thieves were caught on camera.

Investigators say one of the women approached the 38-year-old victim on the Q train platform on Nov. 16 and spoke to her in a language she did not understand.

Another woman, police said, was behind the victim and crashed into her.

After the women left, the victim boarded the train and realized the wallet in her purse was missing.

Investigators say the wallet itself was valued at $100.

It contained $30 in cash, identification, four debit cards and two credit cards.

The victim received text messages after the theft that her credit cards had been used in transactions totaling $1,100 at the Target located in the Atlantic Avenue terminal.

Police are asking citizens for help in tracking down the suspects.
