A 90-year-old woman was mugged as she went to lay flowers on the grave of her late husband.

British native Nancy Reeve was left bleeding and bruised after being attacked and thrown to the ground while her attacker fled with her bag containing $81.

Reeve, a great great grandmother from West Midlands, U.K., is now trying to help police catch the mugger.

She had a cut above her right eye, needing six stitches, and had to have stitches for a hand wound.

Other injuries include severe bruising on her hands and arms, grazing and bruising to her right knee.

Reeve was taken to the hospital and is now being looked after by her daughter Beryl Cox.
