Police are looking for a man who robbed a woman inside a Brooklyn elevator, and they are hoping surveillance video will lead to an arrest.

The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. Monday on Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Authorities say the suspect was holding what could be a gun in his right hand as he cornered the 39-year-old victim, who had eight children with her at the time, inside the elevator.

The suspect removed the woman's jewelry and fled on a bicycle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
