    NY - Attack on NYC Woman, 101, Caught on Tape

    NEW YORK (AP) -- For a moment, the man in the grainy video looks like a good Samaritan holding the door open for an elderly neighbor. Then he turns and delivers three sharp punches to the 101-year-old woman's head.

    "The next thing I knew, I had a big bang on the side of my face," said Rose Morat, who suffered a fractured cheekbone and lost her purse and $33 to the mugger.

    The attack was captured by a surveillance camera in the lobby of her Queens apartment building last Sunday.

    "I'm quite sure that if it had happened when I was younger, I would have been after him," she said. "I'm a very strong woman. I've been that way my whole life.

    I hope they catch the guy who did this. How could anyone do such a horrible thing to a lady that old? I'm glad that he didn't kill her and that she didn't have all of her money with her....or maybe she did. It's a terrible thing though and this attacker deserves to spend a long time in jail.

    Good Lord! What sort of cowardly loser punches a 101 year old woman in the face? This sounds like a tough old broad - he's lucky she wasn't 91 - she might have kicked his a$$!
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    I think they should put a great big REWARD on his head. Wanted dead or alive.

    A local radio guy here in Austin, made the best comment I've heard about this incident. He said, "Here's where we say, 'Bang, bang, stop, stop.'" 'Nuff said.

    I heard someone on MSNBC say that a bunch of the cameramen there were saying all they needed was five minutes alone with this guy in a room. I have a feeling he could have taken her money without the violence. It's not as if she could have put up a terrible struggle. What a shameful, waste of a human being!

    Another TH said, "It took three punches to knock down a 101-year old woman. How's that going to work for you in prison."

    Another good point.

    By the way, I love your tagline. "We don't see the world the way IT is, we see it the way WE are."
