Two camera thefts in two days in Central Park, and the suspect is still on the loose. Police are asking for help to catch the alleged thief. Here’s what we know so far.
The NYPD released still images captured on surveillance cameras of the alleged suspect they’re looking for.
The first theft happened on Friday, May 31 at around 2:19 p.m. A 34-year-old woman was using a camera and tripod near West Drive and Terrace Drive. That’s when an unknown man took her equipment while she was distracted and ran away.
The very next day, on Saturday, June 1, at around 1:30 p.m., a 73-year-old man had his camera stolen near West Drive and the 79th Street Transverse. Police say the same unidentified man grabbed the camera from his hand and fled.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the incidents. If you have any information, call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS
