Two men were caught on camera stalking a woman in Soho before using a knife to rob her of $6,000 worth of electronics on Friday morning.
Shocking surveillance footage showed a suspect stalking the 25-year-old woman on Thompson Street south of Houston Street while his cohort approached her from the front with a machete around 3:30 a.m., police said.
The masked thugs then wheeled the victim into a commercial roller shutter — and snatched her purse containing a $5,940 laptop, tablet, cellphone and headphones, according to the NYPD.
One of the men wore a black tracksuit and Yankee hat, while the other wore a black jacket and red sweatpants, the video showed.
The woman, who was seen huddled in fear in the footage, was physically unharmed, police said.
The crime reportedly happened a week after an insane gunman shot at least two homeless men sleeping on the street in the fashionable neighborhood and killed one of them.
