Police are looking for a man wanted in connection with at least three robberies in Queens.

The most recent robbery happened early Wednesday morning on Austin Street near 71st Road in Forest Hills.

Police say the man grabbed a woman in a bear hug, pressed something sharp against her hand, and took her purse.

He fled the scene in a dark colored four door sedan.

A similar robbery took place on February 12 on Continental Avenue near Dartmouth Street in Forest Hills.

Police say the man used a box cutter in another robbery on February 11 at Lefferts Boulevard and Metropolitan Avenue in Kew Gardens.

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.
