Police say a man is wanted for robbing a 77-year-old woman at a bus stop in Bushwick last month.
They say the woman was waiting at a B60 bus stop on Cooper Street when the man approached her from behind and forcibly removed her purse.
Surveillance cameras caught the incident, showing the man grabbing the woman’s purse and the woman falling to the ground when she tries to fight back.
The man is then seen continuing to pull the bag and drag the woman. He eventually gets the purse away from her and runs toward Evergreen Avenue.
Police say the victim's purse contained a wallet, bible, glasses and approximately $20. She was taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
