Authorities say the suspect pulled the 73-year-old victim out of her Honda Civic on Sunday just after 1 p.m. near Mill Avenue and Mayfair Drive.
He drove off while her 9-year-old poodle Luna was still inside the vehicle.
The suspect was later caught on camera in Mill Basin.
The car was found abandoned in Williamsburg on Wednesday, but Luna is still missing.
