    103-year-old blind woman mugged in the Bronx stunned by assault: 'I was hoping nothing like that would ever happen to me'
    A 103-year-old Bronx woman, robbed as she returned from her bingo game, was recovering Saturday — as the burly bandit who mugged her was put in handcuffs.

    “I was hoping nothing like that would ever happen to me, but it did,” Louise Signore said at her apartment in Co-op City. It was in the hall outside her door, where thief Sharon McNeil, 53, attacked her after following her up in the elevator Friday afternoon, cops said.

    As the senior recovered from a bump to the head and pain to her legs, she recounted the assault she didn’t see coming. The heartless robber said nothing before throwing her to the floor in the eighth-floor hallway of the Bellamy Loop building.

    The menace made off with her shopping cart containing two meals her victim had just picked up from a nearby nutrition center — and grabbed her purse containing $35 and her bingo cards.

    “She didn’t say anything, just took it,” Signore recalled.

    The senior, who is legally blind, stands less than five feet and lives on her own, was aghast the thief targeted her.

    Louise Signore, 103, was attacked in the elevator of her apartment building.
    “She picked on an old woman,” she said. “Why wouldn’t she pick on a younger person?”

    Detectives investigating the crime scoured the area and found surveillance video of McNeil, who was wearing a bright yellow-and-black golf shirt.

    Cops were able to retrace the 250-pound bruiser’s path when one surveillance image led to another and another — right to McNeil’s building on Bronxwood Ave. about 3 miles from the crime scene, cops said.

    She was arrested, taken to Jacobi Hospital for a psychiatric observation and then to the 45th Precinct stationhouse for questioning Saturday night.

    Her arraignment on assault, robbery and harassment charges was pending.

    The 103-year-old Signore said she was doing OK, though she still had aches and pains from the attack.

    “I had a bump on my head yesterday. It’s much better, but my leg still hurts me …,” she said.

    Signore said that after the assault, she shouted for help and her neighbor’s son came to her aid.

    After he helped her call the police, she was eventually able to get her shopping cart back, she said.

    She vowed that the attack would not stop her from going on her regular trips for bingo and take-home meals.

    “I’m going out anyway,” she told NBC. “I might not go out for a few days, but I’m going out.”

    Her rap sheet includes 27 prior arrests, cops said. Her most recent was in 2013 for prostitution, also in the Bronx, according to officials

    I like how they called her the 250 pound bruiser. Sounds like a wrestler.

    In its defense it probably assumed she was a 103 year old dude.

    I'm sure she needed the money to help pay for her college tuition.
