Suspect wanted in gunpoint robbery of 85-year-old man
Police have released surveillance video showing the gunpoint robbery of an 85-year-old man in the Bronx.
The robbery happened on Oct. 19 outside of the victim's residence on Cannon Place, police say, when the suspect approached him as he was trying to enter his residence.
The suspect pulled out a gun and demanded the victim's money, and when he refused, the suspect kicked him to the ground.
After knocking the victim over, the suspect can be seen searching the victim's body and pulling out his wallet, which contained credit cards and $50, police say. The suspect then drove off in a gray, four-door sedan.
The victim suffered a minor injury to his right knee and was treated by emergency personnel on scene.
The individual is described by police as between the ages of 20 and 30 years old, medium-skinned, with an athletic build and a ponytail. He was last seen wearing a Nike windbreaker and a baseball hat.
