Video: Mugger Floors 85-Year-Old Woman
New York - Here’s the dramatic video of a thug trying to wrestle an 85-year-old woman to the ground for her purse — and then turning around and helping her to get up.
The alleged mugging took place on East 121st Street in Harlem at 11:15 a.m. last Saturday, when a man in his 30s approached an elderly woman walking with a cane — and callously tossed her to the ground.
The video appears to show the man then trying to steal the woman’s purse.
But later video shows the same man helping his victim off the ground.
The woman managed to hang onto her bag, and police didn’t immediately know if anything was taken.
