Police have released new photos and footage of the crook they say mugged a number of elderly Brooklynites in their homes over the past few months.
The brute first came to the attention of authorities and Brooklynites on March 2, when police say he drew a gun on a 91-year-old Park Slope women in the entrance to her Ninth Street building, and took $370 from her and a guy who stumbled across the robbery.
But now authorities say the same guy is also behind a spree of similar crimes.
He threatened a 76-year-old woman and 87-year-old man with a gun and knife in Queens — blocks from Bushwick — at around 5 pm on Jan. 20, and made off with $800, police said.
On Feb 11, the snake took $375 from a 71-year-old woman in her home near Prospect Place and Sixth Avenue around 2:30 pm, after attempting to tie her up, brandishing a gun, and hitting the left side of her lip, cops said.
On March 19, the bandit waved a gun and a boxcutter at an 81-year-old woman near Prospect Place and Carlton Avenue at around 5:15 pm, and she handed over $330, police said.
And on March 26, he followed an 83-year-old Kensington lady into her home near Ocean Parkway and Beverly Road at 4:38 pm and whacked her in the face with a hard object, but didn’t steal anything, authorities said.
Police say the 64-year-old suspect is a 5-foot-8 black man, weighing around 202 pounds, and sporting gray hair.
