It happened on September 28 around 4:40 PM:
Surveillance video shows an unidentified suspect ride up on a bicycle, dismount and immediately begin to run after the woman, chasing her down the block and into the middle of the street.
He grabbed her purse, but when she resisted, he punched her in the face multiple times before dragging her to the ground and punching her again, the footage shows.
Police said the victim was able to retain her purse, which contained money from collecting and cashing in aluminum cans.
The would-be thief fled the area on his bike empty handed, according to authorities.
The woman suffered pain and swelling to the face, back pain and abrasions to her body, officials said.
Will this ever end in NYC? The department showed a video of a woman tossing boiling water at a deaf man before stabbing him in the chest:
The 41-year-old victim was sitting outside on Humboldt Street near Boerum Street in Williamsburg around 6 p.m. Sept. 2 when a woman began arguing with him, police said.
She then chucked a cup of boiling water in his face and stabbed him in the chest with an unspecified sharp object, cops said.
