Police are looking to arrest and charge a man with theft after he allegedly robbed several car service drivers, according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said they are looking for a suspect wanted in connection with at least five robberies, one of which occurred in Crown Heights.

The incident in question took place in July, October and November, with the most recent robbery occurring on December 6.

Both October incidents took place in Bedford-Stuyvesant in back-to-back days, October 6 and October 7. In each incident, the suspect jumped into the back of a taxi, then on the way to his destination, pulled a knife to the taxi driver and demanded cash.

In Bedford-Stuyvesant, both incidents took place near Macdonough Street.

Two other robberies took place in Canarsie, in July and November. The most recent heist, on December 6, was in Crown Heights, at the intersection of Empire Boulevard and Bedford Avenue.

Police released a photo of the suspect. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds.
