Police are asking for the public's help in finding the person who they say robbed an elderly man in Chelsea earlier this week.

This is surveillance video of the man police say followed the 92-year-old victim into his home on West 18th Street, just before 11:30 p.m. Monday.

Police say he shoved the victim to the ground and took a bag, which contained a Bible and a pair of glasses.

The victim hurt his hip in the attack.

A $22,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
