SOHO — A woman was attacked by two robbers who took her purse on Greene Street last week, police said.

The 33-year-old East Village woman told police that when she walked past 54 Greene St. last Friday at about 11:45 p.m., a man began charging toward her from across the street.

As she started to back up, another man appeared behind her. The second man threw her down to the ground, covered her mouth and held her down as his partner grabbed her purse, police said.

The men ran off with her handbag, jumped into a white SUV driven by a third accomplice, and drove off, police said.

An iPhone 5, a $250 wallet and more than $200 of Prada and Chanel makeup were inside the bag.

Police were still investigating the crime as of Dec. 30.

Other notable crimes in this week's NYPD blotter for the 1st Precinct include:

► A 22-year-old Brooklyn man was robbed at knifepoint inside the Whitehall-South Ferry subway station on Dec. 22 at about 5 a.m. The victim told police that a man approached him, displayed a knife and demanded, “Give me everything you have." The victim handed over his iPhone 5 and the thief fled the station.

► A man stole $1,924 worth of medications for dry eyes, lips, cold sores and colds from Duane Reade’s 250 Broadway location on Dec. 23 at about 9 p.m. Police said the thief placed stickers on security cameras in the lower level of the Duane Reade, then stuffed his backpack with merchandise. He made out with nearly 100 items including Visine and lip balms made by Blistex, Carmex and Chapstick, as well as cold sore medication Abreva, and cold medications Tylenol and Nyquil. The store declined comment.

► A burglar broke into Asian fusion eatery Obao on Dec. 28, stealing $400 in cash from two registers, police said. The thief broke through a glass side door of the 38 Water St. restaurant about 12:30 a.m., grabbed the cash and fled, police said. The eatery did not immediately return a request for comment.

► A man had his $5,000 2013 Yamaha motorcycle stolen from the corner of Albany Street and South End Avenue, police said. The 38-year-old told police he parked his bike on the street on Dec. 19 and it was missing three days later when he returned.
