Police this week were still searching for a suspect wanted in connection with the strong-arm robbery of a Lindenwood resident.
According to Deputy Inspector Jeff Schiff, commanding officer of the 106th Precinct, the suspect approached a man last Wednesday on 88th Street near 151st Avenue, raised his shirt to reveal a silver firearm, and demanded cash.
The perpetrator is described as a white man, approximately 6-feet tall and weighing 140 pounds, who was wearing a red baseball cap, black T-shirt, black shorts, and sunglasses at the time of the robbery. He also has an arm tattoo, and “frequents areas in the confines of the 106th Precinct,” Schiff said.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect or the incident is asked to notify Det. John Gridley of the 106th Precinct Detective Squad at (718) 845-2261; or Detective Borough Queens South at (718) 520-9200.
