Updated April 13, 12:45 a.m.: A pair of seeming Samaritans ripped off an elderly Village woman early one morning last month after feigning to help her, police said.
Police recently released a photo of the second suspect.
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.
