The police are seeking the public’s assistance in finding a suspect who they say robbed a 90-year-old man’s wallet, before making him drive to two ATM machines and take out money.

The incident occurred on Friday in front of a Stop and Shop located at 34-51 48th Street. The victim was walking to his car at 10:45 am when the suspect grabbed him by his neck and demanded his wallet.

The suspect then demanded the victim’s PIN number and that he drive to two locations where the victim was forced to remove money from an ATM machine, according to the NYPD.

The victim was not injured.

Police are asking the public for any information leading them to the suspect, who is described as a man in his 30s with braids.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477.
