MANHATTAN — A 51-year-old Bronx man has been arrested for allegedly sticking up four people at gunpoint on the Upper East Side last month, the NYPD said.
Robert Hill was arrested Tuesday and charged with robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
Hill is accused of mugging four victims on Sept. 23 and Sept. 24.
Cops said he approached the victims in the early-morning hours at gunpoint and demanded their property.
Hill allegedly robbed a 51-year-old at 4:20 a.m. on 213 E. 88 St., police said. An hour later, he mugged a 25-year-old man at 333 E. 70th St.
The next day, cops said Hill robbed a 42-year-old woman at 2 a.m. in front of 320 W. 55th St. and an unidentified man down the block just 10 minutes later.
