Bronx atm attack

ALLERTON, the Bronx — A 43-year-old Bronx woman died 10 days after she was attacked at an ATM, police said.

Tamara Sinclair was at a Bank of America location near the corner of Pelham Parkway and White Plains Road when she was beaten on Feb. 11, officials said. She'd argued with the attackers before the assault. They threw her to the ground.

"She ended up breaking her ankle," NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said. "She had a blood clot and died from her injuries."

Her body was found in her home on Friday.

"Really just a tragic case, very sad," NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said.

The NYPD is looking into the initial response from patrol officers. Sinclair had gone to a police precinct to report the attack.

No arrests have been made. Police have asked for help identifying the attackers.
