Police are on the hunt for a man wanted in connection to a robbery pattern in Bushwick.
News 12 is told the man targeted three people in the span of an hour.
Surveillance video captured the suspect walking along the sidewalk on Nov. 4 at 4:50 a.m. That is when police say he assaulted a 43-year-old man standing on Menahan and Myrtle avenues.
The suspect punched the victim multiple times in the face before taking his cellphone and $20.
About 10 minutes later, the man struck again. This time a 34-year-old female by Wilson Avenue and Woodbine Street. The victim told officials she was walking out of her residence when a man hits her in the back of the head with an object. News 12 is told he got away with her cellphone and $200. 
The suspect did not end there. He then went after his last victim an hour later. Officials say a 25-year-old man was walking on Woodbine Street when a man ambushed him from the back with a sharp object demanding money. He got away with another cellphone and $200.
News 12 is told two of the victims were treated for lacerations to the head.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
