This is the shocking moment an elderly woman gets rob inside an elevator.

How did the culprits do it? She was simply distracted by two men while their accomplice steals the cash straight out of her bag.

When the 69-year-old pensioner stepped into the lift of a shopping center, she was pursued by three bold thieves.

Two of them are males who press various buttons on the lift and appear to argue with the pensioner.

While the two men distract the elderly woman, their female accomplice tried to pinch the £1,000 cash out of her bag.

Apparently, the victim had withdrawn her savings of £1,000 from Lloyds Bank prior to being targeted by the gang.

Watch this footage:

According to the police, the pensioner did not realize she got robbed until she reached her car.

The woman, probably in her 40s, has long dyed white hair and was wearing a black leather jacket. The two male suspects were said to be Eastern European men with one in his 40s and the other in his 30s.

The incident happened in the Exchange Shopping Mall in Ilford, east London.

The video was released by the Metropolitan Police in an attempt to identify and track the suspects.
