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 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.

    The first robber pictured here looks a lot like the guy robbing people in Wash Sq Park with a gun and a knife.
