A 79-year-old man walking down a Bronx street was robbed of $500 by woman who first offered him sex for money — and then ripped him off when he turned her down, police said Monday.
The woman approached the man as he was walking on W. 192nd St. near University Ave. about 2:20 p.m. May 4 and boldly offered him oral sex for cash, cops said.
When he refused, she reached into his pocket and grabbed $500 cash he was carrying. The victim grabbed her arm to try to prevent her from running off with the cash, but as she pulled away he lost his balance and fell.
The victim was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries. The crook ran off with his cash and has not been caught.
Cops released surveillance video Monday of the suspect walking with the victim, who was wearing a surgical mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus, just before she robbed him,
Cops are asking the public’s help identifying the suspect and tracking her down. She has a light complexion and is about 5-foot-6 and 130 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
