An 81-year-old man and his wife were severely beaten during a robbery in the lobby of their apartment building, New York City police say.

Joseph and Linda Naimo of Staten Island had just closed up their store and had walked over to their apartment building next door when they were attacked Sunday night.

Police say Naimo's 75-year-old wife suffered a broken nose, broken jaw and fractured skull. She was in stable but critical condition.

Naimo suffered cuts and bruises. He had celebrated his birthday earlier in the day.

The robbers got away with Naimo's wallet, which contained $18.
