Police are asking for help identifying a second suspect wanted in connection with a Bronx robbery.

Around 12:30 p.m. Friday, police say a 78-year-old man was on his way to deliver flowers to the grave of his mother for Mother's Day when he was approached from behind by two men.

Cops say the two men assaulted him, stealing a pendant and chain and were then chased by officers who witnessed the robbery.

Police say one of the suspects was arrested, but another got away in a silver vehicle.

The suspect in custody is identified as 23-year-old Charles Hackett.

He now faces charges including robbery and resisting arrest.
