Robber steals $1K in property from Grand Concourse victim

Police are looking for a man who knocked over and robbed a 41-year old man by the Grand Concourse on Walton Avenue last month.

The NYPD says that a 41-year old male was walking near 1216 Walton Ave. when an unknown man  approached from behind and pushed the victim to the ground on Tuesday, April 14 at 9:45 p.m.

That perp then forcibly removed the victim’s cell phone and property valued at $1,000 before fleeing the scene on foot to a nearby residence, police said.

Although the victim suffered pain and bruising, he reportedly refused medical attention on site.

Police from the 44th Precinct also released additional surveillance images of the suspect.
