2008_09_grandmama.jpgThis week Elsie Barretto was the latest in the disturbing trend of "granny muggings" when a robber attacked her coming out of the elevator of her Upper East Side building. The 83 year-old deaf woman suffered a black eye, broken dentures, cuts to her mouth that required stitches and even had her pants ripped by the thug trying to get at her cash. Life may have taken away her hearing, but it sure hasn't been able to get rid of her fight. She says that she kicked and punched her attacker throughout the robber in an attempt to defend herself. And she's not done. Now Barretto tells cops: "If you find him, bring him back to me...I'm going to punch him in right in the face and I'm gonna break his mouth and break his nose. To teach him a lesson."
