Caught on camera: Police are looking for this crook, who violently stole a woman’s purse at gunpoint inside an a Fort Greene business’s Flushing Avenue office on Dec. 21.

Cops are hunting for the gun-toting goon who snatched a woman’s purse amid a violent robbery inside the office of a Fort Greene business.

The bruiser strode into the Flushing Avenue business between Vanderbilt and Clinton avenues around 5:45 pm on Dec. 21, flashing a silver gun at the 53-year-old victim while demanding she hand over money, according to authorities.

The impatient criminal then lunged at the woman and forcibly ripped her bag from her hands while she sat at her desk chair, according to surveillance footage of the incident, which shows the creep turn and point his firearm at another employee after he brutally burgled the victim.

The creep then again turned his gun on the woman, who cowered and hid under her desk, before making his way towards the exit, according to the video.

Police described their suspect — who ran off with the purse containing the victim’s iPhone and $800 cash — as around 25-years-old, and roughly 6-feet tall.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at, on Twitter @NYPDTips or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are confidential.

Too bad there wasn’t a Republican gun nut around to stop this Democrat criminal. This city is going to need another Giuliani to clean up after de Bozo destroys NYC.
