Grand Concourse robbery suspect sought

Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a 70-year-old man earlier this month.



The incident occurred just after 9 a.m. on Nov. 9. Authorities say the suspect posed as a customer at a Pay-O-Matic on the Grand Concourse.



Surveillance video shows the suspect trying to grab the 70-year-old victim, who tried to push the suspect off.



The two struggled for a bit before the suspect punched the victim in the face and ran out with $300.



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