One-legged man, accomplice allegedly snatch 86-year-old woman's wallet in NYC

A one-legged crook joined up with a partner to snatch an elderly woman’s wallet and phone from a Queens drug store, cops said. 

The amputee, seen in surveillance footage walking with crutches, approached the 86-year-old woman inside the Duane Reade on Broadway near 35th Street in Astoria, authorities said.

He grabbed the woman’s wallet — holding $40 and her iPhone — from her pocketbook as his alleged accomplice shielded his actions from public view, cops said.
