The victim fought back and was able to get away, but she was cut in the hand with an unknown object. She had to get seven stitches.

On the video, a suspect is seen looking through her purse and taking what police say were several personal items and debit cards. Images show the suspects walking down the street after the incident.

News 12 spoke to the woman's son, who says something needs to be done to find the men that hurt his mother. He says his mother is petrified to leave the house because she's now scared of running into her attackers.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
