    Police are looking for a man who pretended to be a Meals on Wheels employee and robbed a 103-year-old woman at her Upper West Side home.

    The suspect somehow got past the lobby of the woman's West 94th Street apartment building and ended up at her door, on the 14th floor.

    He posed as the worker and talked his way into her apartment, according to the Daily News.

    He asked to use her restroom, and then took $250, according to the News.

    Her 76-year-old son, Peter Rudko, said his mother is "pretty shaken up."

    An 87-year-old neighbor told the News that the victim "is very strong. And very tough."
