Police are asking for help in tracking down a man who they say has pulled off a string of cab robberies in the Bronx.

Surveillance video of the suspect was taken inside a family shelter at 190 Willow Avenue shortly after the most recent incident on Saturday morning.

Police say the man pulled a knife on a cabbie and stole $50 and a cell phone before entering the building.

The same man is suspected of robbing at least two other cabbies in the same area, getting away with credit cards and more than $700 in cash.

He was last seen wearing a multi-colored baseball cap, a white and black polo shirt, blue jeans, and red and white sneakers.

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.
