NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- Police are trying to identify a man responsible for a string of armed robberies in New York City.

Officials say a male suspect is responsible for six robberies since late-August that have taken place primarily in the Bronx and Harlem.

In each case, the suspect followed a male victim, roughly 60-plus years old, into their buildings and then forcibly detained them and demanded their belongings.
