Police released video Friday of a man wanted for breaking into the premises of a well-known Long Island City non-profit last month and making off with a laptop.
The burglary took place on May 13 at around 6:30 a.m. inside the Urban Upbound facility located at 12-15 40 Ave., according to police. Urban Upbound is a local non-profit group tasked with fighting poverty in the neighborhood.
The suspect, police said, threw a cement rock through the glass front door of the premises and then went inside and stole a Lenovo laptop.
He then fled back out through the front door, cops said.
The perpetrator was then captured on CCTV footage around 20 minutes later entering the Queensbridge subway station — located around a block away on the corner of 21st Street and 41st Avenue, police said.
Police described the suspect as having a slim build with a medium complexion. He has brown eyes, short black hair and a mustache. He was last seen wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, black jeans, a white surgical mask and black sneakers.
Footage of the suspect can be viewed below.
