In the Bronx, police are looking for one of two robbers who took advantage of a 78-year old man on his way to honor his mother.

Police say the victim had just bought flowers to put at his mother's grave Friday night when two men jumped him on East Tremont Avenue in the West Farms section.

The victim fought with the suspects but they were able to overpower him, and stole a gold chain and pendant from around his neck.

Police officers managed to chase down one of the suspects.

The other was able to make it to a car and fled the scene.

The victim suffered only minor injuries.
