A surveillance video obtained by ABC affiliate WABC shows what happened next.
In it, Davidson can be seen reaching for and then grappling with Ramondetta for
possession of the bag. He then starts downward, dragging both women with him.
A Queens grandma returned to her childhood home in Washington Heights to see how it had changed after 73 years — and got an ugly dose of reality.
Marjorie Ramondetta, 93, and her daughter Linda Reynolds, 65, were allegedly shoved down a flight of stairs in the building by a **** who then stole their pocketbooks, law-enforcement sources said.
“After we fell, he took the bags,” a still-bruised Reynolds told The Post yesterday. “I heard my mother say, ‘Please help me! I ran upstairs, and I’m yelling, ‘Call the cops! Call the cops! Someone help us!’ ”

While in custody, he allegedly confessed to stealing the purses as well as to a similar case on Aug. 2.
Davidson has 21 prior arrests dating back to 2008.
