NEW YORK (CBS 2) – A mugger who preys on elderly women in Brooklyn was still on the loose Monday morning.

Frustrated investigators have again released surveillance video of the suspect. He’s wanted for at least six robberies in Coney Island apartment buildings since June.

In each case, he approached his elderly victims from behind, pushed them to ground, snatched their bags or jewelry and ran off.

The victims ranged in age from 70 to 84.

All suffered minor injuries.
