Police say they're searching for a man wanted in a robbery in Brighton Beach.
Investigators say a 47-year-old man was napping on a stoop on Coney Island Avenue last Saturday when he was robbed.
Surveillance video shows the suspect walking up to the man several times around 2 a.m. The suspect was smoking a cigarette and used a flashlight at one point. He allegedly went back several times to remove more items from the victim.
Police say the suspect stole a $2,000 bracelet, a $1,000 chain, a $200 Tommy Hilfiger vest and a $200 Calvin Klein wallet. The victim's ID and bank cards were also stolen.
The victim went to police when he woke up and realized what was taken.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
