NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man wanted for an armed robbery in the Bronx.

Police said the suspect, armed with a silver handgun, forced his first victim, a 22-year-old Hispanic woman, back inside her Fremont apartment on Sunday, November 20.

Once inside, the suspect shot his second victim, a 28-year-old Black man in the torso around 4:55 p.m. and demanded money.

Police say the suspect took the woman’s cell phone before fleeing the scene.

The man was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Police describe the suspect as a Black man between 18 and 25-years-old, standing at 5’8″ and weighing 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark pants, multi-colored sneakers, a black hooded jacket and baseball cap.

Anyone with information should call police or Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
