Suspects on BMX bikes attempt to rob woman in gym parking lot
A woman was talking on her cell phone and walking to her car after a trip to the gym in mid-July.
Then, her phone was snatched from her hand. When she reached for it, a suspect on a BMX-style bike “ran her over” in the parking lot, Miami Police said.
Now, police have released a video of the incident, in hopes that someone would be able to identify the two suspects and one accomplice who took part in the incident.
In the video, the man rides into the YouFit Gym parking lot at 553 Northwest 79th St. in El Portal at around 7:45 p.m. on July 18 and snatches the phone. He dropped the phone and when the woman tried to grab it from the ground, another suspect, also on a BMX bike, knocks her over before leaving the lot, police said.
While on the ground, the woman, who was not named, told police that she saw the two suspects and another accomplice leave westbound. She was treated for minor injuries.
Police described the suspects as between 13 and 16 years old.
