Two men wanted for robbing 90-year-old man

The NYPD is asking for help identifying two men wanted for attacking and robbing an elderly man in Harlem.

Jesse Little gets around pretty well for a man who spent 30 years in the Merchant Marines and was born in 1920.

His walls are covered with memories of his 90 years.

Police have released photographs of two suspects in Jesse's mugging that happened right on his own floor. Police believe the two men followed him in to the elevator.

The incident happened in the man's apartment building on 139th Street around 2 p.m. On December 4.

Some say the whole complex known as Savoy Park has security problems.

Police are hoping someone will recognize the men in the pictures, because if they could mug a defenseless 90-year-old man, clearly they are capable of hurting anyone.

The man is in stable condition at Harlem Hospital.
