Police are looking for one of two suspects they say attacked a man in the Bronx over the weekend with a glass bottle before robbing him.
On Feb. 6 at about 11:45 p.m. two suspects approached a 50-year-old man near Lawrence Avenue and East 172nd Street while he was outside his taxi, cops said.
After a brief argument, one of the suspects hit the victim in the face with a glass bottle and the other punched the man on the side of his head, according to authorities.
Once the victim fell to the floor, one of the two men removed his jacket which contained $1,000, police said. The suspects then fled on foot west on East 172nd Street.
Police have released video and photos of one of the suspects who they describe as a Hispanic man, between 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 200 pounds, with a goatee and hair in a ponytail. He was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, gray hooded sweater, dark colored baseball cap, light colored jeans and black sneakers.
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).
