Last Sunday, a 73 year old woman who gave a man $1 when he requested it was then robbed by that same man for an additional $75. The incident took place by the Columbus Circle subway station.
Police surveillance footage published by CBS New York shows the suspect sneaking up behind the woman to then reach into her purse. While the suspect’s identity has not been revealed, the video displays a pretty clear shot of him.
