Police Searching for Suspect in Manhattan Home Invasion
MIDTOWN — Police are hunting for a suspect involved in a home invasion robbery in Manhattan that took place early Thursday morning.
The NYPD released a sketch of the suspect, who they said broke into a man's Midtown apartment at 7:45 a.m. on February 6.
The victim, 24, was awakened by the noise in his apartment and found the suspect, described as 5 feet tall and 170 pounds, standing there.
When the resident asked the invader what he was doing, the suspect told him that he had a knife, and "just needed some money," police said. The victim gave the man $26 and he fled the location, the NYPD said. The victim was not injured, police said.
Police said the suspect has a teardrop tattoo under his left eye, and asked anyone with any information about the robbery to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477).
