Surveillance video shows the brazen theft.

The NYPD is on the lookout for a woman who committed a brazen theft of a 66-year-old man at a Burger King in the Bronx last week.

Newly released surveillance video shows the incident as it happened just before 5 p.m. on February 17th at the fast food restaurant on 161st Street in Melrose.

The victim, who was using a walker, was at the front counter where he put down a $50 bill. That's when an unidentified woman proceeded to take the money from the counter.

The man then tried to get the money back, but the suspect then pushes him away and manages to flee the scene.

The individual is described as a female, 40 to 50 years old, and was last seen wearing a black du-rag on her head and all black clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477, submit tips online at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text any tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then enter TIP577.
