March 3, 2021 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a man who beat and robbed an Elmhurst resident in the lobby of the victim’s building last week.

The suspect followed the victim — a 57-year-old man– into the lobby of his apartment building near 88th Street and Roosevelt Avenue at 12:13 a.m. on Thursday, police said.

Once inside, the suspect repeatedly punched the victim in the head and took his wallet–which contained $40–before running off, police said.

The victim suffered pain and swelling to his head and was transported to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to 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).
