THE BRONX - Police are looking for a man who they say committed grand larceny against a 3-year-old boy inside a Hunts Point liquor store.

According to investigators, a 43-year-old woman was at 1045 East 163rd St. with her child last Friday. They say the boy removed $500 cash from her jacket pocket without her knowing, but the suspect took notice, and snatched the money from the toddler's hands.
