Video shows Mott Haven robbery suspect who targeted 3 women on same cornerPosted: Updated:
Police are trying to find the man who robbed three women at one location and within a short time frame in Mott Haven.
According to investigators, all three incidents happened last Friday near Brown Place and East 136th Street, where the suspect was caught on surveillance video.
They say he first grabbed a woman from behind at around 5:30 a.m., placed an unknown object to her side and demanded her belongings. He managed to take her cellphone and ATM card.
Just two hours later, the suspect threatened a second victim who was pushing her baby in a stroller, but she started screaming when he grabbed her purse. The man then waited for a third woman to walk by and got away with another cellphone.
Cops are asking anyone with information or who may recognize him from the video to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
