A heartless crook knocked a 75-year-old man to the ground and swiped $150 from him inside a Manhattan bank, cops said Thursday.
The septuagenarian was withdrawing cash inside a Citibank on Park Avenue South and 25th Street at 9:45 a.m. on Saturday, when the thief came up behind him, brandished an unknown object and demanded money, police said.
“I want your money,” the crook said, who knocked the man to the ground and yanked his wallet containing cards, an ID and the cash from his hands, according to cops.
Surveillance video from inside the ATM booth shows the elderly man sprawled on his back trying to kick away the thief, who then runs out of the bank.
The attacker was last seen dressed in black with a grey backpack. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
