Nonagenarian, Sexagenarian Mugged While Visiting Childhood Manhattan Home

A 93-year-old woman who returned to her childhood home in Manhattan for the first time since the 1940s was mugged, along with her daughter, by a man who offered to show them their old apartment, according to a published report. 

Marjorie Ramondetta and her 65-year-old daughter Linda Reynolds went back to the old building on Amsterdam Avenue and 164th Street in Washington Heights Tuesday to take pictures for a scrapbook, reports The New York Post.
