Police are searching for a man who stole valuables from a Long Island City hotel guest earlier this month.
The thief entered Aloft Hotel, located at 27-45 Jackson Ave., and went inside a 45-year-old man’s room through his unlocked door at around 4 a.m. on Sept. 6. He then stole the victim’s cell phone and wallet, which contained several credit cards.
The thief used one of the credit cards on the same day to make a $7 purchase at a Duane Reade and a $77 purchase at Gotham Video, both located in Manhattan, police say.
The suspect is described as white, bald, and was last seen wearing a green shirt with the word “audience” on the front.
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).
