Police released images of two twerps they say tried to rob a 76-year-old Coney Island woman in her Surf Avenue apartment building on April 20.
The woman was waiting for an elevator in the apartment, which sits between W. 20th and W. 21st streets, at 10 am when the pair of punks tried to take her purse, police said.
The scrubs failed and scuttled off to parts unknown, officials said. Police are describing the would-be robbers as two males between 15 and 19 years old who were last seen wearing black and white jackets.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcr
