THE BRONX - The NYPD has released surveillance video of a gunman wanted for robbing a man in Mott Haven. 

According to police, the suspect followed his victim to the second floor of 148 Bruckner Blvd. back on Feb. 26. 

They say the suspect demanded at gunpoint that the victim give him everything he had after he was unable to tell him where to buy marijuana. He then got away with an iPhone, identification and debit card. 

Later that night, investigators say the suspect tried and failed to use the stolen debit card on Fifth Avenue. 

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS
