A crooked couple are being sought for grabbing a woman off the street and mugging her on Jan. 7.

The frazzled victim told police that she was walking on Fifth Avenue near 72nd Street at around 10 am when a 38-year-old woman grabbed her by the arm.

“Come with me, pretend you’re my cousin,” the woman said. “Don’t look back.”

The stranger led her to a male accomplice, also 38, who was standing at 76th Street. That’s when the woman snatched the purse, removing some jewelry and $700, officials said.

The victim tried to take the money back, but the thieves grabbed it back and ran off, leaving her penniless.
