The getaway driver in an early morning Bronx mugging is also suspected in a string of robberies targeting exotic dancers, police sources said Thursday.
Cops say Melissa Triana, 20, waited behind the wheel of a gray Honda by the corner of Fairmount Place and Southern Boulevard in West Farms at 6:00 a.m. Thursday, while her male accomplice struck.
The victim, a 34-year-old woman, was walking home, when Triana’s cohort punched her in the face, and swiped $1,300 from her, cops said.
After the robbery, the suspect jumped in the Honda and Triana sped off.
