Police in Brooklyn are looking for a serial robber who targets elderly women.

Investigators released surveillance video of the man.

They say he has struck at least six times in Coney Island.

In each case, police say he approaches the women from behind, pushes them to the ground and steals their jewelry or pocketbooks.

Most of the robberies happened in the middle of the day.

The victims range in age from 70 to 84.
