A 51-year-old woman claims she was beaten up by a group of teenage girls in downtown Brooklyn on Tuesday.

She told police that the girls also hit her around the head.

Apparently the NYPD hate crimes unit was notified immediately after the incident at 345 Adams Street.
It’s a 13-story building that houses the Department of Finance, the Department of Probation, the Board of Elections, the Administration for Children’s Services and various other city agencies.
It is unclear which office the woman was visiting at the time.
She was not hospitalized and no arrests have been made yet.
