A duo on a moped knocked a woman to the ground as they grabbed her purse in Brooklyn this week, disturbing new video shows. 

The 41-year-old victim was walking at 57th Street and Eighth Avenue in Sunset Park around 9:20 p.m. Sunday when the pair drove up behind her on the sidewalk and the back passenger snatched her white handbag, video released late Tuesday shows.
