Man Armed With Hypodermic Needle Mugging Pedestrians In The Bronx: Cops
Imagine this: you're minding your own business, going to work, and a guy tells you to give up your cash or he'll stab you with a hypodermic needle. Cops say it has happened more than once in the Bronx.

The guy pulled a stick up at Roberts and East Tremont Avenue Tuesday around 8:30 a.m. where he made off with another man's cash and property.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect they are hunting for. They say he ripped off another guy back on August 16 near Castle Hill and East Tremont Avenues around 11am.

The guy is described as Hispanic about 40-years-old, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 120 pounds. Cops say he has black hair, brown eyes and was last seen wearing a black leather Yankees Cap, a black hoodie and t-shirt, grey jeans, and black sneakers.

If you recognize him you are asked to call Crime Stoppers line at 1-800-577-TIPS.
