Police: Man wanted for 2 gunpoint robberies in the Bronx, Queens

EASTCHESTER -

A man is wanted in connection to two robberies just days apart from one another with one happening in the Bronx and the other in Queens.

Police have new video of the getaway car they say the suspect got away in.

Police say the car is a silver Chrysler Pacifica minivan fleeing the scene on Jan. 8. 

The second of his two attacks, the one in the Bronx, happened at an Eastchester Dunkin’ Donuts on Boston Road. 

Surveillance shows him holding a woman at gunpoint as she scrambles to put money into a brown paper bag. She then nervously rips the bag, spilling the money on the floor.

She tries to pick it up but doesn't move fast enough. The suspect ripped the $700 from her hands.

Just three days before that, the suspect hit a Mobile gas station in Queens.

Again, police say the suspect walked up to a person behind the register demanding cash. They say he got away with $600 and 15 packs of cigarettes.

Both times he was seen wearing a similar, if not the same outfit. They say he was wearing a black hooded sweater, dark sweatpants and dark boots.

Anyone with information should call police.
