Have You Seen... Subway Newsstand Robber

Who knew that crooks bothered to rob subway newsstands -- or that those newsstands had surveillance cameras? This perp likes to work holidays and the Lexington Avenue line: Around 7:30 p.m. on Christmas Day, he busted into the kiosk at the 86th Street stop with a gun, and robbed the proprietor of cash; on New Year's Day he did the same at the 51 Street/Lexington Avenue stop. He is described as 5'10" tall and approximately 40-45 years old.

If you have any info, NYPD asks that you call 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or visit, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
