Woman Coaxes Young Girl To Steal Wallet At Nail Salon

Posted: Updated:

Philadelphia Police have released video of a robbery involving a woman and a young girl.

The disturbing aspect of this crime, other that the obvious, is that the girl - clearly a juvenile - is coaxed by the woman to commit the crime.

On June 10, at the Magic Nail Salon on the 3200 block of North Front Street, a 43-year old woman was getting her nails done. During her treatment, the suspect, who is sitting nearby, instructs the young girl to go into the patron's purse and take her wallet.

That wallet contained various forms of ID and bank cards.

The suspect and the child then left the salon.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic female, 20 years-of-age, blonde hair, wearing a gray shirt and black sweat pants.  She was in the company of a juvenile female.

If you have any information on this suspect, please call 911.
