Police released a sketch of a suspect wanted in two Central Park gunpoint robberies in less than a week.

In the first stickup last Friday morning, a 55-year-old man was robbed of $1,000 while seated on a bench by the exit at 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue, police said.

The male suspect had first asked the victim for $5 as he entered the park near the 72nd Street and Central Park West entrance, according to police.

When the victim refused, the suspect followed him, pulled out a black semi-automatic pistol and demanded his cash, police said.

On Tuesday, the same man is suspected of robbing a 67-year-old woman who was walking near Swan Lake.

The suspect was on a bike when he approached her and said, “I need to take your purse,” before flashing a black handgun, according to police.

“Can I at least keep my phone?” the victim pleaded.

But the armed suspect allegedly refused and said, “No, I need your purse right now.”

She handed it over, and the suspect took off, cops said. The cellphone was later found nearby on the ground.

Cops said the suspect is around 5 feet 6 inches tall, 150 pounds and in his 20s.

South Salem Man Charged After Woman Killed In Hit-Run Crash At Cross River Shopping Center

A suspect has been apprehended after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash at a busy shopping center in Northern Westchester.

The crash happened around 8:45 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1 in the town of Lewisboro at the Orchard Square Shopping Center at the intersection of routes 35 and 121 in the hamlet of Cross River.

The victim, Randi J. Blattberg, age 65, of Mount Vernon, was transported to Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco with life-threatening injuries, New York State Police said. She was later transported to Westchester Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

An investigation determined the operator who struck the victim and then fled the scene was Jeffrey S. Dickens, age 62, of South Salem. He was subsequently arrested for leaving the scene of a fatal motor vehicle accident, a Class D felony.

Dickens was arraigned before the town of Lewisboro Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $35,000 cash bail, $100,000 bond, or $200,000 partially secure bond. He is scheduled to reappear before the court on Monday, Dec. 12.
