A Bronx woman is under arrest after police said she attacked and robbed a 103-year-old woman she followed walking into her Bellamy Loop apartment building.
Sharon McNeil, 55, of Bronxwood Avenue, now faces robbery, assault and harassment charges, according to an NYPD bulletin.
Police said McNeil rode the elevator with her victim around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, both leaving on the same floor. There she allegedly pushed the elderly woman onto the floor, stole her purse and two meals she obtained from a nearby community center.
An ambulance responded but the victim refused medical attention, police said.
Information about McNeil’s court dates were not immediately available.
