Senior scam

Some shady lady stole a purse from a senior citizen on the corner of Fourth Avenue and 79th Street on March 4.

The 88-year-old victim told cops that she was walking home from the grocery store at around 3:30 pm when a younger woman approached her and asked for directions. When the elderly woman turned to point towards a route, the perp grabbed her purse from her shopping cart and fled. The senior’s blue bag contained cash and cards.
