Police are searching for a man who stole a chain off the neck of a 73-year-old man on 48th Street in Sunset Park on May 27.

The man grabbed the other man’s chain and tried to pull it off his neck between Fifth and Sixth avenues just after 7 pm. The man wearing the chain briefly held onto it before the robber fully ripped it off his neck and fled towards Fourth Avenue, police said.

The thief is between 25- and 35-years-old, police said, and around 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-10. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweater, blue jeans, and black sneakers.

The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are confidential.
