Cops are hunting a man that they believe is responsible for four muggings at gunpoint in Sheepshead Bay, Gravesend, Gerritsen Beach and Mill Basin.
Police say their man is a black male in his mid-20s, between 6’0″ to 6’2″, with a light complexion and last seen wearing rectangular eyeglasses. He was slightly unshaven, and may drive or have a co-conspirator who drives a white Acura TL.
The four robberies police believe him responsible for are:
- On September 6, at 3:45pm, the 67-year-old male victim was parking his car in his Marine Park garage, near Stuart Street, when the suspect put a gun to his head and demanded his watch, ring and cellphone. After getting the goods, the robber ran north on Gerritsen Avenue and then jumped into a waiting white Acura TL on Avenue R.
- On September 10, at 10:55am, in front of 325 Whitman Drive in Mill Basin, the 35-year-old female victim was getting out of her car when the man came up to her. He pointed a gun at her and forced her to hand over her watch and wallet, which contained $300 and credit cards. He fled on foot.
- On September 14, at 9:35pm, approached his victim near West 1st Street and Village Road South in Gravesend as the 56-year-old man walked out of his driveway. He flashed a gun and pulled off his wedding ring and his watch before running off to a car and driving away.
- A 78-year-old man and 74-year-old woman were robbed next, on September 17 at 9pm, on the corner of Avenue Z and Batchelder Street. The two were walking when the man approached, flashed his gun and took a watch before fleeing.
No one was injured in any of these incidents. Using descriptions from the witnesses, cops were able to make the sketch above.
