DAILYKENN.com -- A 75-year-old woman was attacked in an apartment building Easter Sunday.
The attack was captured on video.
"He not talk, nothing. Put me on the floor. Boom, boom, boom. Whole purse, he take it," the victim said.
Residents said the building is full of elderly tenants and people who have physical disabilities - easy prey for those looking to do harm.
"My mom is disabled. She does live here. God forbid that happened to her," said Elnas Topic, whose mother lives in the building.
The apartment building does not have a doorman, rather, visitors need to be buzzed in or let in by a resident.
Vesna Jovanvic said she may have seen the intruder as she was leaving the building, but refused to give him access.
Those who live here said that people have walked in behind residents before, but never have any of them been attacked inside their own building.
"No morals at all. No morals. I swear," said Willie Walker, a building resident.
Community activist Andrew Holmes called the security footage heartbreaking. He said he hopes a $1,000 reward will help solve the crime.
