WINDSOR TERRACE — The NYPD released a photo of the man suspected in at least one gunpoint robbery of a woman in the neighborhood.
The 72nd Precinct on Wednesday tweeted a photo of the suspect in an Aug. 29 robbery near 19th and Seeley streets at 11:10 p.m. A wanted poster for the suspect warns that he's considered armed and dangerous.
Investigators believe the same man is behind a series of muggings in the 72nd and 66th Precincts around Caton Avenue in Kensington and near the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station, Capt. Tommy Ng, commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct, told South Slope News.
The muggings have rattled neighbors used to quiet, safe streets in Windsor Terrace.
"What's happening to my neighborhood?" a spooked local wrote on a community Facebook page.
Crime stats from mid-August show only a slight uptick in robberies — there were 22 in the previous four weeks, compared with 20 during the same period last year.
However overall crime in the 72nd Precinct has dropped 3.82 percent compared to 2014, according to the NYPD.
