Police are looking for a man who they say is connected to four separate cab robberies in Queens.

According to police, three of the robberies happened this month, while the first happened in October.

In three of the robberies, police say the man, seen above allegedly using a credit card stolen from a victim, demanded property from the drivers, while another suspect aimed a gun at the victims.

Police say the suspect usually tells the drivers to open the trunk as a distraction.

In one case, a driver suffered minor injuries when he was hit in the face.

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.
