Police say a man is wanted in connection to a robbery at a flower shop in Throgs Neck on Nov. 19.

They say the suspect broke into Fabulous Flowers by pushing in the air conditioning unit and forcing his way through the back of the shop around 1 a.m.

Police say once he broke in, he found his way to the cash register and stole $1,500.

Officials say he was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants and is said to be 6 feet tall and about 230 pounds.

They say he was last seen headed west on Randall's Avenue.

The store owner tells News 12 the man attempted to rob the store again a week later, but had not taken anything.

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