Robbed of purse

A thief threw a woman against a residential gate during a mugging on July 29.

The victim told police she was walking down East 52nd Street between Winthrop and Clarkson avenues at 10:10 pm when the suspect grabbed her and shoved her so hard into the gate, she injured her knee.

The thief then put a hard object — possibly a gun — to her back, demanding her purse.

Cops said the suspect ran off with the woman’s property, but was arrested following a short investigation.
