New York City police are hoping surveillance video will help them catch an armed robber who targets subway station kiosks. Investigators say the man has robbed at least two kiosks, one on Christmas day and the other on New Year's.

In one robbery, he had a gun. The other time, he showed a knife.

Both of the stations were on Manhattan's East Side, and in both cases, the kiosk worker was not injured. The first incident happened at East 86th Street and Lexington Avenue. The second occurred at 51st Street and Lexington.

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