Police are looking for a man who allegedly grabbed a senior by the neck and robbed her inside her Rego Park building Tuesday.

The suspect approached a 72-year-old woman as she was checking the mail in her building lobby near 64th Avenue and 98th Street at around 12:30 p.m., police said.

The man allegedly grabbed the woman by the neck from behind and demanded she hand over her valuables. He then grabbed her jewelry and $60 before fleeing the building in an unknown direction, police said.

The victim suffered some pain and bruising and was treated on the scene.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
