FLUSHING, Queens (WABC) -- Exclusive pictures show a 79-year-old woman's body that was left black-and-blue after two suspects violently robbed a Queens jewelry store.
Police say the 5'1" tall victim tried fighting back but was overpowered by the robbers who beat, kicked, and pistol-whipped her.
Eyewitness News also obtained exclusive surveillance video of the suspects apparently casing Diamond Collect on 39th Avenue in Flushing before carrying out the crime.
The video shows one of them, wearing an Amazon jacket, leaving a package outside the door around 2:30 p.m. February 22, and waving goodbye to the victim.
According to police, he left, but then doubled back and hid until the victim opened the door to retrieve the package.
When she opened the door, the video shows the suspect charging at her and a second person running up before they forced their way in.
