Cops Hunt for Woman Who Kidnapped, Robbed Couple, Police Say
WAKEFIELD — Cops are asking for the public's help to find a 35-year-old woman suspected of participating in the kidnapping and robbing of a couple in early September.
Lisa Hylton and three men ambushed a 49-year-old woman, forced her inside her apartment and demanded money on September 2, police said.
When the alleged robbers didn't find any cash in the victim's home, they assaulted her for two days and eventually forced her to lure her 48-year-old boyfriend to her apartment, according to the NYPD.
Once the unidentified boyfriend arrived, the suspects tied him and assaulted him until he disclosed where he lived. That's when two of the men went with the boyfriend to his apartment and robbed jewelry, electronic equipment and cash.
Trevor Cole, 26, Dominique Jean-Phillipe, 29, and Jeremy Acevedo, 25, all of Mt. Vernon, have been arrested in connection and charged with kidnapping and robbery.
Hylton, who police say is 5-foot-7-inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds, remains at large.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website, WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or texting tips to 274637(CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
