Cops are looking for a crook who robbed a man in Manhattan early Tuesday morning.

Authorities say that at 12:15 a.m. on Nov. 24, officers responded to a report regarding a robbery outside of 240 Park Avenue South. Upon their arrival, officers were informed by a 64-year-old man that he parked in front of the building so he could enter a nearby bank and withdraw money. 

When he exited the bank, an unknown man approached the victim and demanded cash. The suspect said that he had a firearm but did not pull it out. The victim handed over $20 in cash and the suspect fled on foot southbound on Park Avenue South. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

The suspect is described by police as a 25-year-old white man standing 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing all black.

The investigation is ongoing.
