NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD is looking for a suspect who targets and robs elderly women in Brooklyn.

Police have released a surveillance video of the suspect and are seeking the public’s help in identifying him.

On March 2, the suspect approached a 91-year-old woman from behind, placed her in a chokehold and displayed a gun. He pushed her inside a building vestibule and removed money from her. A 50-year-old man who came upon them was held at gunpoint and also robbed. The suspect fled with about $370.

On Jan. 20, the suspect robbed a 76-year-old woman at knifepoint of about $800 after pushing her inside her apartment.

Two other women, aged 71 and 81, were each robbed of over $300 in separate incidents in February and March.
