The phrasing for this sentence seems weird. Could anyone explain or relate it back to something learned?

Sorry, I don't even know the lesson where you did it. I see it has no translation. It should be "They are stealing from the old mother" (Not sure of the preposition... :) ) or "They steal from the old mother"

The context I can more easily think is two bad guys, which regularly take money from the wallet of their mother, who love them too much to complain.
