The perp demanded money from the victim, then reached into his pocket and removed his wallet, which contained $760. He fled on foot.

Approximately 30 minutes later, cops say the perp approached a 35-year-old man as he was parking his car in his driveway on 47th Street in Sunset Park. The suspect displayed a gun and demanded money. The victim complied and handed over $60. The suspect then fled the location on foot.
