New York City police are seeking help finding an alleged con man in Brooklyn.

Police say the man shows people apartments and takes cash deposits from them. But he has no right to rent the apartments and allegedly takes off with the money.

So far, police know of about eight incidents, mostly in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The suspect is in his mid-30s. He stands about 5-foot-6 and weighs 150 pounds.
