HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) -- A 59-year-old Houston, Texas woman who is confined to a wheelchair, was robbed in broad daylight Thursday by two men who threatened her with a knife.

Rachel Hernandez, 59, who suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure and other ailments, has been confined to a wheelchair since having her foot amputated a few years ago.

Hernandez had a friend drop her off at the intersection of Antoine and Tidwell, near her grandson's apartment, when she saw the two men approaching her.

"I just said hi how y'all doing, and he suddenly takes knife and says shut up and don't scream, and the other one yanked my purse and took off.," said Hernandez.
