NYPD is looking for a man they think committed seven robberies from June 24 through this past Monday. Though his began his spree with a Subway restaurant on East Gun Hill Road in The Bronx, he thereafter concentrated on Dunkin’ Donuts outlets in The Bronx and Manhattan, most recently at 55 West 55th Street. Wearing a blue bandana in the first two robberies and yellow bandana in the last five, he told employees that he had a gun and demanded cash. Maybe he figures these stores will soon be squeezed out by Tim Hortons, and thus unlikely to prosecute.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic between 30 and 40 years of age, between 5’10” and 6 feet tall, and between 170-190 pounds, with glasses and a goatee. If you have information as to this man or these incidents, NYPD asks you to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477), www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
