When the victim turned to leave, the suspect grabbed her and demanded money, authorities said. The suspect attempted to force the woman back into the apartment, but she refused and dropped to the ground, they said.

“I am glad the owner of the house has cameras, and it is scary to know it happened right next door to where I’m living at,” neighbor Kevin Nunez told CBS2.
