No (phony) good deed goes unpunished.
Police on April 21 said they had arrested one of the alleged sham Samaritans who aided an elderly Village woman after she fell last month, only then to rob her.
Following an ongoing investigation, a homeless man, Glenn Jackson, 58, was charged with grand larceny.
The other suspect is still at large.
According to police, on Mon., March 2, around 4:20 a.m., a 91-year-old woman fell down at the corner of Sixth Ave. and W. Third St. Two unknown males came to her aid and offered to help walk her back to her residence.
Once they arrived there, though, one of the men snatched $110 from her before they both fled northbound on Sixth Ave.
