DailyCaller – A man robbed a 93-year-old East Harlem woman Wednesday by swiping $600 she kept in her bra for safe-keeping.
Wheelchair-bound Maria Vasquez had just cashed her $600 Social Security when she was robbed at a clothing store, reports NBC New York. Vazquez alleged that the man scratched her as he took the cash out of her bra.
“They’re stealing my money! They’re stealing my money!” she reportedly yelled.

Vasquez told NBC New York the money was for food, rent, water and electricity.
