(WHAS11) – An elderly Florida woman is recovering from a violent attack inside a grocery store.

Surveillance video captured the woman being knocked unconscious when a thief ripped her purse from her hands.

The 74-year-old was just released from the hospital and has a list of injuries that require follow-up care over the coming weeks.

While she focuses on getting better, her daughters are pleading for help in finding the suspects.

“What is society coming to when a woman can’t carry a purse on her arm and walk into a store without feeling like she has to look over her back shoulder because somebody is going to attack her,” the woman’s daughter said.

Police have no leads on the suspects.
