The thief reportedly went into Oliva Rojas Salinas’ home in the town of Pitalito in the Huila department of Colombia.
The woman is believed to have pretended to have been interested in one of the rooms Salinas was renting, but once inside the house she demanded the OAP hand over her phone and wallet.
When the pensioner refused, the female robber is said to have begun punching and kicking Salinas in the face before grabbing a stone from the kitchen and smacking the pensioner in the head with it several times.
The 87-year-old is believed to have been knocked consciousness in the attack and woke to find the thief had stolen her belongings, including dentures which had two gold teeth in them.
Neighbours reportedly heard the pensioner’s screams for help and called the police who transferred her to a hospital.
Reports suggest the OAP suffered bruising, open wounds to her head and a fracture in her legs in the attack.
No arrests have been reported.
