On Saturday, November 13 at about 8:58am, an individual got on an M10 bus in front of 200 Central Park West (the AMNH) and threatened to kill the bus driver. He then “simulated a firearm and fled the bus to parts unknown,” an NYPD representative tells us.
The NYPD announced on November 20, one week after the incident, that it’s now seeking assistance from the public in identifying the suspect – who is wanted for “Menacing in front of 200 Central Park West.” Here’s a surveillance video of the individual in question.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
A reward of up to $3,500 is being offered to anyone who has a tip which helps lead the NYPD to the suspect’s arrest.
