Cops are looking to identify the man they say robbed the Ninth Avenue “D” subway station not once, but twice this year.
According to police, the suspect — described solely by authorities as a black man — used bolt cutters to cut a lock and enter a room within the station just before 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 16, and then removed a number of expensive power tools.
He is said to have done the same thing just before 4 p.m. on Friday, February 26.
The suspect was last seen wearing a dark colored hooded jacket, dark colored pants, a dark colored baseball cap, dark colored boots and an orange and yellow work vest.
