Oct. 15, 2019 By Christian Murray

The NYPD is looking for a police impersonator who allegedly robbed a man at gunpoint.

The suspect allegedly forced his way into a basement apartment at around 11:40 a.m. in the vicinity of 45th Avenue and Robinson Street on Oct. 1 and approached a 35-year-old man who was installing a boiler.

The alleged perpetrator displayed a firearm and produced what looked like a police shield around his neck. He then demanded the victim’s property and was able to remove a bag, jewelry, an iPad, cash and clothing from inside before fleeing.

The police have released video of the man fleeing the location and entering a 2-door silver sedan.

Anyone with information in regard 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).
