NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Police are searching for two men who snatched an 82-year-old woman’s bag inside a Manhattan AMC movie theater earlier this month.

The two men grabbed the woman’s bag as she sat watching a movie inside the Upper West Side AMC on Broadway around 6:48 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3, police said.

The woman’s bag contained her credit cards and cell phone, police said. She wasn’t injured in the incident.
