A member of the "girl gang" that assaulted and robbed a pharmacy employee last summer was arrested on Thursday after a witness identified her.

The gang of women, including eighteen-year-old Melissa Hernandez, had charged into Cityline Pharmacy--located in the 66th Precinct at 511 Cortelyou Road near Ocean Parkway--punched the victim in the face, which broke her nose, kicked her body, stole her watch and cellphone, and ran away.

The arrested woman is charged with gang assault, robbery, and criminal possession of stolen property.

The crime occurred on Tuesday, August 14, 2012, at 6:10 p.m.
