A dirtbag mugged an old lady at gunpoint in Park Slope on Wednesday afternoon, according to a police report.

The 91-year-old woman was entering a building on Ninth Street between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West at around 1 pm when the lout grabbed her in a chokehold from behind and pulled out a gun, cops said.

He then pushed her inside the building’s vestibule and forced her to hand over her money, authorities said. Right at that moment, a 50-year-old guy walked in on the pair, but the bandit turned his weapon on the newcomer and made him cough up his cash, too, police said.

The villain then bolted with a total of $370 in his pocket, police said.

Authorities have released footage of the suspect, who they describe as around 40 to 50 years old, standing 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall, and weighing approximately 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark colored hoodie, black jacket, black wool cap, black gloves, light pants, and dark shoes, cops said.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
