The NYPD has released surveillance video of a suspect they say threatened a man with scissors on the subway Monday morning before stealing his wallet.
On June 27 at about 12:25 a.m. the suspect approached the 63-year-old victim while onboard a southbound A train that was arriving at the 145th Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue subway station in Harlem, according to police.
The suspect then took out a pair of scissors towards the victim and demanded his wallet, cops said. The man took the wallet — which contained a bank card, credit card and $60 in cash — and ran off the train.
Police describe the suspect — who was caught in a surveillance video exiting the subway station — as a black man, about 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
