Police arrested a 31-year-old woman with a lengthy criminal record for robbing two elderly women in Forest Hills last month.

Nikki Newmark, a Forest Hills resident, was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of robbery, according to police.

The first robbery occurred on April 5 when she allegedly pushed a 70-year-old woman to the ground near Yellowstone Blvd/67th Road and stole her purse.

In the second incident on April 16, Newmark allegedly knocked a 73-year-old woman in the vicinity of Yellowstone Blvd/67th PAvenue to the ground in the process of grabbing her purse from behind.

Police said that Newmark has a criminal record dating back about six years, but did not say what other crimes she committed.

Absolutely observed! Why didn’t she do it to some one her age!! Because she would have got a run for her money!! I feel terribly for her victims!! And there’s not a drug in this world that would make me hurt the elderly! Let her rot in jail!
