A thief hurled an elderly man to the ground as he snatched his wallet in the Bronx this week, new video released by police shows.
The 79-year-old victim was thumbing through his wallet on East 149th Street near Brook Avenue in Mott Haven at 11:15 a.m. Wednesday when the suspect approached and quickly grabbed it, according to cops and the footage.
The victim struggled to hold onto his wallet — but the mugger wouldn’t give up, and hurled the senior to the ground, the clip shows.
The suspect took off with the wallet, which held a bank card, $60 and an ID card, cops said.
The victim refused medical attention for pain to his right shoulder.
