A cold crook in his 20s knocked a 77-year-old woman to the ground and stole her purse in the Excelsior neighborhood Sunday, police said.
The elderly woman was robbed in the unit block of Allison St. around 7 p.m., police said. The young punk “wrenched her purse from her arms” before sending her to the pavement, cops said.
He carried out the callous act in front of a witness who had been standing in front of her home. The suspect was described as a black man standing 6-feet-tall, weighing 160-pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black jeans, police said. Cops are on the hunt.
