Two robbers pushed an 80-year-old woman to the ground and grabbed her purse Tuesday in Lincoln Park, police said.

An 80-year-old woman was robbed in broad daylight in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood Tuesday by two boys, one of whom may have been as young as 12 years old, police said. After yanking her purse off her arm, police said the two suspects fled south into an alley that runs along North Southport Avenue.
