"The accused asked for a glass of water and the moment Patil turned to fetch it, the accused took out a knife and threatened to kill her. She robbed the senior citizen of cash and jewellery. She then tied and gagged the elderly woman and her grandson before escaping," the report quoted a police officer as saying.

The senior citizen managed to reach the window and screamed for help. She was noticed by a passerby who came to her rescue. Later, the matter was reported to the police.
