Police are looking for a man, they say, attacked and robbed an elderly woman and robbed a man that attempted to intervene on Wednesday, March 2 in Park Slope.

According to police reports, at about 1 p.m., a 91-year-old woman was approached and then grabbed from behind as she entered a building located at 555 Ninth Street, between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West.

The attacker allegedly placed the woman in a chokehold, and then flashed a handgun, demanding her money. During the attack, a 50-year-old man came across the two in the lobby, and was also subsequently robbed at gunpoint. The suspect then fled, making off with approximately $370.
