Two men followed a woman into her apartment building, then attacked her and robbed her of about $200, police said.
The 63-year-old grandmother was coming home from the grocery store shortly after 5 p.m. on April 29 and returning to her building on Leggett Avenue in the Longwood neighborhood of the Bronx, her son-in-law told NBC 4 New York.
She opened three doors and the men followed her inside, he said.
The men pulled out a knife, wrestled her to the ground and cut off her handbag, the NYPD said.
The woman suffered a small cut on her hand and was treated at Jacobi Medical Center, police said.
The suspects fled on Southern Boulevard, police said. No arrests have been made.
