Three teens robbed a woman leaving the Red Hook IKEA on Nov. 2 — but were quickly collared.
The 37-year-old victim said the terrible trio followed her in the parking lot of the Beard Street superstore near Otsego Street at 5:15 pm, demanding her cellphone and money.
The teens took her phone, but cops caught up to them faster than you can say, “FÃ¤ngelse,” arresting a 16-year-old girl, a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, and charging them with robbery.
A pack of four teen girls robbed another girl on Baltic Street on Oct. 30, but the gang didn’t get far.
The 16-year-old victim said the fiendish foursome kicked her to the ground near Smith Street at 9:50 pm and took her $400 Blackberry cellphone. Cops quickly arrested two 13-year-olds and a pair of 14-year-olds for the robbery.
