Police are investigating the horrific robbery that took place around 10.30am in a posh neighborhood of Magnificent Mile in Chicago.

According to the surveillance footage, the woman could be seen walking with a cane in a parking garage that connected to the back entrance of her apartment building.

A man seemed to notice her from afar and suddenly peeled off from his two companions on the sidewalk.

He approached the old woman from behind and pulled violently on her purse strap as she prepared to enter the building’s back door.

A police department spokesperson said the woman was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but her condition was not immediately clear.

However, a source told CWBChicago the woman is expected to recover.

One nearby resident was shocked by the video, and told WBBM-TV: “The first question is why. Is she OK?”

Police recently issued surveillance images of a man who investigators believe to be the suspect.

The photos show the man walking into a subway station while wearing clothing that looks identical to those worn by the attacker.
