TO SEE THE LATEST FORECAST AND PROJECTED PATH FOR HURRICANE DORIAN, GO TO OUR WEBSITE, CBSNEWYORK.COM. A VIOLENT ROBBERY IN QUEENS SUSPECTS CAUGHT ON CAMERA. CBS 2’S TARA JAKEWAY IS LIVE IN JAMAICA WITH THE VIDEO. TARA. Reporter: WELL, JESSICA AND MARY, THAT ASSAULT TAKING PLACE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET HERE RIGHT BEHIND ME. POLICE SAY IT WAS FOUR TEENS THAT BEAT A WOMAN IN HER 60s EVEN WHEN SHE WAS DOWN ON THE GROUND AND DEFEND LESS. ALL THIS JUST FOR THE WOMAN’S CELL PHONE. IT WAS AT 8 P.M. ON AUGUST 4th THAT THESE TEENS APPROACHED THE 67-YEAR-OLD VICTIM ON 169th STREET. ONE AT FIRST WRESTLED WITH HER FOR HER CANE, THEN TWO, THEN THERE WERE FOUR THAT SURROUNDED HER KNOCKING HER TO THE GROUND AND HITTING HER WITH HER CANE. YOU CAN SEE HER THROW HER ARMS IN THE AIR BEGGING FOR IT TO STOP. POLICE SAY THEY BELIEVE THE TWO MEN AND WOMEN TOOK HER CELL PHONE AND TOOK OFF IN A LATE MODEL NISSAN ALTIMA. THAT’S CRAZY THAT PEOPLE WOULD DO THAT. THEY ARE TEENS. Reporter: STEPHANIE ALVAREZ WAS A FEW STREETS AWAY WITH HER FIVE CHILDREN AND HAS ANOTHER ONE ON THE WAY. HER OLDEST TWO ARE APPROACHING THEIR TEEN YEARS. SHE PLANS TO SHOW THEM THE VIDEO AS A TEACHABLE MOMENT. I DON’T WANT THEY DO THAT THING ONE DAY. THAT’S SAD. Reporter: THIS PERSON TEACHES YOUNG PEOPLE HIMSELF MAINLY RELIGION TO A CLASS DOWN THE STREET FROM THE INCIDENT. I HATE IT. I HATE THE GUY WHO ATTACKED THE WOMAN. WOMEN SHOULD BE RESPECTED. Reporter: THE VIDEO SHARED FROM NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR THURSDAY MORNING. TERRIFIED. I KNEW THE NEIGHBORHOOD WAS UNSAFE BUT NOT THAT UNSAFE TO BEAT AN OLD LADY WITH A CANE, THAT’S RIDICULOUS. Reporter: THIS WOMAN LIVED IN THE JAMAICA NEIGHBORHOOD HER WHOLE LIFE AND HAS SEEN HER FAIR SHARE OF VIOLENCE. IT’S ACTUALLY INSPIRED THE 20- YEAR-OLD COLLEGE STUDENT TO MAJOR IN MEDICINE. I HAVE ALWAYS SEEN PEOPLE HURT AND, YOU KNOW, WORKED IN HOSPITAL SETTINGS BEFORE. AND I HAD AN INKLING TO GO IN AND START HELPING PEOPLE. Reporter: THE VICTIM WAS SHAKEN BUT REFUSED TREATMENT AT THE SCENE. HERE’S ONE MORE LOOK AT THE FOUR TEENS POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR. AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT WE SPOKE TO HERE TODAY WALKED PAST THIS SPOT TO GET TO THE BUS STOP WHERE THE “F” TRAIN RIGHT DOWN THE STREET DAILY GOES.

    Looking at the suspects I’m not surprised, liberals keep giving their families money to breed and this is what you get. Happy now liberals?

    When they do not even respect their own parents why would they respect a 60 year old stranger? Just shoot them in the face with pepper spray (when they stare you down or get too close for comfort, not after they are stomping the yard).
