EAST VILLAGE (PIX11) – Cops arrested 33-year-old Freddie Keitt in connection with a brutal elevator robbery against a 75-year-old Greenwich Village woman.

On December 8th, police say he follower Yvonne Sherwell into her West 13th Street building and stole her purse.

Today, at a precinct in Manhattan, Sherwell and his three other female victims, identified Keitt in a line-up.

“Yes, I pointed out someone to cops,” said a victim who did not give her name.
