Police are looking for a man they say has been robbing people in the Bronx by threatening to stick them with a hypodermic needle.
Investigators say the man struck twice over the past month, first on August 16 in Morris Park and then on Tuesday in Westchester Square.
The victim was not hurt in either case.
The man is described as being about 40 years old, 5'6" tall with black hair and brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing a black leather Yankees cap, a black t-shirt with blue lettering, grey jeans and black sneakers.
