NEW YORK (1010 WINS/CBS 2) — A fake UPS deliveryman is causing some real fear in upper Manhattan.

Police have released surveillance pictures of a suspect wanted in two attempted armed robberies in Hamilton Heights.

The incidents happened 20 minutes apart on Oct. 29.

Police say the man was wearing headphones during both incidents.

    So, I suppose we are susposed to ask for official UPS ID when the perp pulls out a gun?
