Pushy pleas

Cops are looking for three teenage girls who bum-rushed and robbed a 41-year-old woman as they fired off a sob story about a sick mother.

Police said that the woman was nearing the corner of Benson Avenue and Bay 22nd Street at 4:20 p.m. on March 3 when the three teens pushed the woman to the ground.

They then punched and kicked the woman as they tried to get her bag, all the while claiming that they needed the victim’s money because their “mom is sick.”

After a brief struggle, the victim finally handed $50 to the thieves, who ran off into the night.
