The 86-year-old Bernice Starnes was sitting in her wheelchair in front of her apartment building in the Bronx, US when she got mugged.

Adrianne Terry thought that an elderly woman in a wheelchair must be the perfect victim. Why would she not steal from a defenseless person?

How the cowardly assailant thought she'd get away with her petty crime is a baffling question. Police released a photo of the woman and she was not long after caught and handcuffed.

The 86-year-old showed very little compassion for her robber as is clear in the video below. It sounds like Bernice would have loved to step toe-to-toe with her evil-doer, if only she were a little younger still.
