Police are looking for the heartless young men they believe robbed an 11-year-old girl in the Bronx earlier this month.

The young victim was walking along Morris Ave. near East 184th Street on the morning of October 10, 2013 when the three — who appear to be teenagers — walked up to her and snatched a chain from the girl’s neck.

The chain broke into several pieces as it was torn away, and the thieves stopped to pick up the pieces before running away, police said.

The suspected chain snatcher was wearing a grey hoodie and grey sweatpants. One of the lookouts was wearing a dark grey hoodie and dark sweatpants, the other a light colored long sleeve shirt and a baseball cap.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
