A Queens man has been arrested for allegedly robbing a 90-year-old outside a Stop and Shop in Woodside.

Last week, police released the above sketch of a suspect and a surveillance camera photo.

Wade Hairston, 28, is now being charged with robbery, unlawful imprisonment and other crimes.

Investigators say Hairston grabbed the victim by the neck, then asked him to hand over his wallet.

He allegedly forced the victim into giving him his ATM pin and made him drive to two locations to withdraw money.

Police say the victim didn't suffer any injuries.
