Police said that they are searching for an individual wanted in connection with a robbery that took place in South Ozone Park on Sept. 4.
Around 10:55 a.m., the suspect approached a 44-year-old man at the corner of 128th Street and Sutter Avenue, displayed a firearm and shot him in the left ankle when he tried to run away. The suspect then snatched the victim’s chains from his neck and fled southbound on 129th Street inside a silver coupe.
The suspect has been described as a five-foot-nine-inch, dark-skinned man who weighs approximately 160 pounds and is believed to be in his 20s. The individual was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, black-hooded sweater and dark colored jeans. The vehicle in which the suspect fled is described as a silver two-door Nissan Altima that possibly had Connecticut license plates.
