A group of kids viciously attacked and robbed an elderly woman in Pelham Bay last weekend — one was arrested on Wednesday.

According to police, on April 3, a 76-year-old woman was accosted by three teens at 12:30 a.m., in the vicinity of Roberts Avenue and Hobart Avenue. These youngsters clearly didn’t know how to treat their elders.

One person allegedly pulled the victim’s hair, while a second individual pulled her purse and forcibly swung her, causing the elderly woman to fall. One person then allegedly stole her purse, which contained $50, a wallet, a debit card and insurance cards. The woman was taken to Jacobi Hospital and sustained a fractured hip. The individuals fled on foot towards Hobart Avenue.

On Wednesday, a 13-year-old boy was arrested for the assault and subsequent robbery. His two accomplices are still at large.
