An elderly man in the Bronx was recently attacked by a mugger, but the assailant has now been connected to a string of robberies in Manhattan. The 83-year-old victim was just one in a series of individuals targeted by this dangerous criminal. It’s important for local authorities to apprehend this perpetrator before any more innocent individuals become victims of their violent actions.
Newly released surveillance footage shows the suspect sought for two robberies in the Bronx. Authorities suspect that the same individual is responsible for robbing two individuals in Murray Hill with only 15 minutes in between the incidents.
On the morning of September 15th, a 38-year-old woman was taking a walk near the intersection of Park Avenue and East 39th Street when a man wearing large rose gold Beats headphones suddenly snatched her cell phone out of her hands. According to the authorities, the culprit quickly fled towards Madison Avenue after committing the theft.
A man, who had previously snatched a cellphone from a woman, approached another woman who was walking on East 34th Street between Madison Avenue and 5th Avenue after fifteen minutes. The victim was a 51-year-old woman, and the man forcefully took away her cellphone before fleeing the scene.
Last month, there were two robberies that occurred in the Bronx and investigators have been able to link both incidents to the same suspect.
In the afternoon of September 12, at approximately 12:30 p.m., an elderly gentleman who was 83 years old was taking a walk around the area of East 169th Street and Simpson Street. A youth came up to him and brandished a knife, causing the senior to feel threatened and intimidated.
According to police, the perpetrator took the wallet and cash of the senior citizen before running away on foot towards Southern Boulevard on East 167th Street.
According to authorities, it is suspected that the perpetrator who robbed a man inside a subway train, is the same person who committed the recent crime half an hour later.
In the Bronx, on September 12th, a young man of 24 was riding on a southbound Number 2 train around noon. Just before the train arrived at the Freeman Street train station, a man wearing a white hoodie approached him.
According to authorities, the individual wearing the hooded sweatshirt forcefully took the victim’s backpack and quickly left the train.
