Strong-arm robbery is a term used to describe a situation where the offender uses or threatens to use his or her fists, feet, hands, or teeth to deprive the victim of their personal possessions and/or money. Muggings and other robberies are included in this type of robbery when no weapons other than hands, feet, etc. are used to commit the act.

In cases of purse-snatching or pocket-picking, if the victim does not resist, it is classified as larceny-theft. If the victim resists and force or threat of force is used, it is classified as strong arm robbery. For example, If a woman is shoved to the ground in the act of stealing her purse, it a strong-arm robbery. If the thief snatches her purse off her shoulder and runs off, it is larceny-theft.
