Police have released surveillance video of two women accused of robbing an elderly woman in the Bronx last week.

Investigators say the suspects seen in the video approached a 74-year-old walking near East Tremont Avenue on Wednesday.

They say the women convinced the victim to give them money and made off with several thousand dollars from her bank account.

Both suspects then fled in a grey four-door sedan.

The victim was not injured.

The suspects are said to be in their mid-30s to mid-40s, about 5-feet-5-inches tall and 130 pounds.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit NYPDCrimestoppers.com.

All calls are strictly confidential.
