A man suspected of mugging a deaf 83-year-old woman surrendered to police yesterday. The Post reports that 21-year-old Anthony Jackson now faces assault and robbery charges after attacking Elsie Barretto, who was leaving her Upper East Side building's elevator. Barretto, standing five feet tall, did put up a fight, but suffered a black eye, broken dentures, and cuts to her mouth; her pants were also ripped (Jackson was really trying to get her money). The grandmother of 27 had requested last week, "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." It's unclear whether the police will comply.
