Police: Woman arrested in robbery of 103-year-old

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a suspect has been arrested in an attack on a 103-year-old woman in her New York City apartment building. The New York Police Department says 53-year-old Sharon McNeil was arrested Saturday on robbery, assault and harassment charges.

Police say McNeil followed the elderly victim into the elevator in her apartment building in the Co-Op City section of the Bronx on Friday and then attacked her in a hallway. They say McNeil knocked the victim to the ground and stole a shopping cart with the victim's purse and two meals she had just picked up from a local community center. The victim refused medical treatment.

It wasn't immediately clear if McNeil had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
