NYPD on the hunt for suspect in Bronx and NYC gold jewelry robberies
The NYPD is asking for the public's help to locate a man who they say is connected to a string of gold jewelry robberies in the Bronx and Manhattan.
They say a 22-year-old woman was walking at the corner of Grand Concourse and East 150th Street on Monday May 2 when the man who was riding on a red and black motorcycle ripped her gold necklace from around her neck and caused her to fall to her knees.
He sped off on his motorcycle and got away with a property value of about $800.
The NYPD also say he has robbed or attempted to rob gold jewelry from women in the Washington Heights and Inwood neighborhoods of Manhattan on the same day.
The suspect is described about 40 years old and was last seen wearing a black jacket, dark blue jeans with rips and black and grey sneakers.
