PHILADELPHIA -

Bail for the two suspects arrested in connection to the attack of a 94-year-old woman was set at $1 million in a Monday afternoon arraignment.

Christopher Brunkel, 31, and 27-year-old Gregory Drobish were arrested after the attack and were charged with Aggravated Assault, Robbery and other charges, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said.

Investigators say Drobish is the grandson of the woman who was attacked.

Sophie Drobish was discovered by her neighbors inside of her Mayfair home Sunday duct taped and beaten.

Neighbors told FOX 29 they attempted to chase one of the suspects moments after the robbery.

The district attorney's office says Brunkel and Drobish are scheduled to appear in court again later this month.
