On Thursday, June 16, at approximately 1:30 p.m. a 41-year-old woman was sitting in her vehicle double parked in front of 39 Debevoise Street in Bedford- Stuyvesant when a suspect walked up to her and distracts her by telling her that the vehicle that went by struck her vehicle.

Both suspects fled to parts unknown.
