Police are asking for help tracking down a mugger who stole a woman's cell phone and sprayed her in the face with an unknown substance on a Bronx sidewalk last month. According to the NYPD, the victim, a 27-year-old female, was approached by the suspect at the intersection of Westchester Avenue and Wheeler Avenue on July 7th shortly before midnight. The suspect asked the woman for the time, and when she took out her cell phone to check it, the suspect grabbed it from her hand.

Investigators say that in addition to grabbing the phone, the mugger "sprayed an unknown substance onto the victim's face causing her eyes to have a burning sensation." The thief, described as a "female white Hispanic, approximately 5'3" with black hair in a long pony tail" then ran off. The video above shows her running past a nearby bodega.

The victim was taken to an area hospital where she was treated and released.
