The NYPD is looking for a man who repeatedly punched a 55-year-old woman inside an elevator and then took off with her cell phone, jewelry and money.

Police say the suspect punched the victim about the face and head in a Bronx building elevator on Donizzetti Place. When the elevator stopped on the fourth floor, police say, he forced the victim to the stairwell where he continued to beat her.

The woman was taken to a hospital where she was treated for lacerations to her face and a broken rib.
