A 61-year-old New York City woman was bludgeoned with a kitchen pan while out walking in Harlem on Tuesday evening as crime rates in cities continue to trend up and New York City, in particular, sees a spike in violent crime against women over 50.
The four despicable attackers allegedly approached the unnamed victim around 8:20 p.m. and confronted her, only for one to drag her to the ground moments later as seen on NYPD surveillance footage.
Another assailant, a man in a white tee-shirt, then began to attack the woman with a cooking pot as she cowered on the ground.
The four suspects then made off with the victim’s cash, credit cards, and the walker according to the New York Police Department.

The victim is currently at Harlem Hospital where she is reportedly recovering from her injuries.
Violent crime continues to rise all over the country in the aftermath of the radical left’s “Defund the Police” movement. Women over 50 are the latest demographic in NYC to be victimized.
Weeks ago on July 2, a 76-year-old woman was shoved to the ground and injured by a man walking his dog in Brooklyn.
On July 9, a 70-year-old woman was attacked in the head in the East Village while going to a doctor’s appointment. Shortly after that, on July 15, a man sucker-punched a 60-year-old woman in the back of the head while waiting for the subway.
Last Saturday, an attacker left a 58-year-old woman with a critical brain injury after dragging her down the stairs of a Manhattan subway station.

Crimes are up across the board in NYC according to NYPD data. Shootings have increased 28.9 percent, shooting victims have spiked 22.2 percent, murders have gone up by 4.7 percent, rape has risen 7.3 percent, other sex crimes have increased 25.9 percent and hate crimes are up by 118.2 percent.
New York City is currently undergoing a nationalized mayoral race where candidates, Democrat Eric Adams and Republican Curtis Sliwa, will likely have to address the unsafe nature of the city and their plans to restore law and order. The city’s multi-billion dollar tourism industry is on the line.
In May, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo admitted that New York City was now in the throes of a “major problem.”
“New Yorkers don’t feel safe and they don’t feel safe because the crime rate is up. It’s not that they are being neurotic or overly sensitive – they are right,” Cuomo said.
The suspects in Tuesday’s attack remain at large, but anyone with information on their identities or whereabouts is encouraged to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477 (TIPS).
