Bronx robber pistol-whips victim on crowded Bronx sidewalk

Authorities are searching for the man wanted in two gunpoint robberies in the Bronx.

On Aug. 30 at about 8:35 p.m., an individual approached a 22-year-old man in front of a shopping area along Bergen Avenue and East 149th Street.

The thief displayed a handgun and demanded his bicycle, police said.

The victim complied, and the man fled north on Bergen Avenue with the bike, said police.

Two days later, police said a man fitting the same description as the first incident approached a 53-year-old man along Morris Avenue and East 149th Street and displayed a handgun.

When the victim refused to give over his money, he was struck on the head with a handgun, said police.

The alleged thief later put the handgun away and produced a box cutter, attempting to cut the victim, according to police.

Following a brief struggle, the victim managed to get away.
