Have seen lots of Scumbag in my time on earth but have never seen one who is so heartless as the man in this video.
A shameless thief snatched a bunch of cash from a 93-year-old woman’s bra as she sat in a wheelchair in one of her favorite East Harlem stores.
A surveillance video of the dastardly act shows the mugger with a man-bun casing the clothing store before casually lifting about $600 in cash from his helpless target on Wednesday afternoon.
Maria Vasquez had just cashed her Social Security check at her bank and was shopping for a new pair of sandals at Regines, a department store on E. 116th St. near Lexington Ave., about 12:20 p.m. when the pickpocket pounced.
Vasquez said she was watching her caretaker peruse the store’s remaining selection of summer shoes when she felt a hand grabbing at her chest.
“He thrust his hand here, and he grabbed the envelope,” she said.
Video of the incident shows a stunned Vasquez craning her neck to see her attacker as he slipped off with her monthly stipend.
Her caretaker tried to alert the store’s staff that the robber was making his getaway, but the man had already slipped into the crowds on 116th St.
“I said, ‘Come here! Come here!! He’s stealing my money!’” Vasquez recounted to a reporter Thursday. “And he hurt me here, as you can see, I’m all red.”
