BAYONNE, NJ - Two women who reported themselves to be homeless were arrested Monday after they allegedly attacked a 78-year-old woman who refused to let them in to the lobby of her apartment complex.

According to Lt. Eric Amato, the woman was waiting in the lobby of the apartment building when the suspects, identified as Linda Krieg, 48 and Raquel Krieg, 42, began banging on the locked door, demanding the victim let them in, bypassing the visitor check-in process required at the main entrance.

After another resident let the suspects in, they approached the victim from behind, pulled her by the hair, threw to the floor, and kicked her before boarding the elevator.
