Police are looking for a man who assaulted a 64-year-old in a hallway on University Avenue last week.

The suspect confronted the elder man in a doorway of 2230 University Avenue, grabbing him from behind and throwing him to the ground.

Before fleeing, the man robbed the 64-year-old of his necklace and ran off in an unknown direction, according to the NYPD.

Police released this footage and image of both the attack and wanted suspect.
