MYFOXNY.COM -

The NYPD is looking for the woman who was part of a kidnapping and robbery group in the Bronx back in September. 

Police say 35-year-old Lisa Hylton is still at large after three other men involved in the crimes were arrested on November 21. 

The kidnapping took place on September 2 when a 49-year-old woman was entering her apartment in the Eastchester section. She was grabbed by the three suspects and Hylton who forced her inside her apartment.  

The four criminals assaulted the victim after they demanded money and realized that she had no money. The criminals forced her to call her boyfriend and kept her captive until he arrived. 

Authorities say on September 4, a 48-year-old man and boyfriend of the victim, arrived to the apartment where the suspects tied and assaulted him before forcing him to reveal where he lived. Hylton and another suspect took the male victim to his apartment and stole jewelry, electronic equipment and cash.  

Hylton then fled in the male victim's car, which was a 2011 Nissan Rogue. The car was found a few days later by police. 

Police say Hylton is Black, 5'7" tall and weighs 150 lbs. 

The three suspects that were arrested in November are: Trevor Cole, 26, from Mt. Vernon, Dominique Jean-Phillipe, 29, from Mt. Vernon and Jeremy Acevedo, 25, from Mt. Vernon. All three were charged with Kidnapping 1st Degree and Robbery 1st Degree.  

Anyone with information in regards to this kidnapping/robbery or the whereabouts of the wanted suspect is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

    For the first time in years, more than 1 million New Yorkers are smoking, marking a disturbing rise of tobacco use in the city that pioneered a number of anti-smoking initiatives that were emulated nationally.  Sixteen percent of adult New Yorkers smoked in 2013, up from 14 percent in 2010, which was the city's lowest recorded rate, according to the findings released by New York City's Department of Health.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
