The NYPD is looking for a woman who attacked a man with a screwdriver earlier this month in the Bronx.
According to police, on Feb. 16, a woman entered a Cee Cee department store, at 404 E. 149 St. in Mott Haven, and a 55-year-old male employee saw her allegedly stealing merchandise. The employee approached her and an altercation ensued.
During the argument, the woman allegedly pulled out a screwdriver and swung it at the employee multiple times. She then fled the scene and stole three articles of clothing with a total value of $30. The employee sustained a minor laceration on the right side of his face during the attack and refused medical attention at the scene.
The woman is described as a female approximately 50 years-old, with a dark complexion, slim build and short black hair. She was last seen wearing a black dreadlocks wig, a white hooded sweatshirt with Old Navy written on the front, white sweatpants and white sneakers.
