Wallet whisk

Two women were arrested after they lifted a wallet off a man on May 14.

Officials said that suspects Crystal Green, 43, and Melinda Pimentel, 30, distracted their victim after they approached him at the corner of Neptune Avenue and West 16th Street at 11:45 pm.

As they kept him busy, they managed to pinch the man’s wallet, which contained $150.

Cops from the 60th Precinct caught up with the two women the next day, charging them with grand larceny in the fourth degree and criminal possession of stolen property.
