Orangetown Police ask residents for any information linked to crime.

Investigators are making progress in tracking down the man who robbed a woman at gunpoint in downtown Nyack last summer, Orangetown Police said.

Police have obtained surveillance photos of the man suspected of the armed robbery. The man has short hair, and is wearing a baggy sweatshirt and large backpack.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact detectives at (845) 359-2121.

The incident occurred at about 11:30 p.m. on August 28. The woman was sitting in a parked car, and the robber demanded money, brandishing a handgun. The woman gave up $20, and the man fled toward Gedney Street, police said.

Hopefully this pond scum has stuck around and will get caught.

So happy to see that this incident is still being investigated. Needing just a few bucks does NOT warrant holding a gun to someone's head! Sadly, I do not recognize him, esp with such fuzzy pics...but hopefully someone will! Pass it on to all your friends and get the word out! To whomever was able to record & retrieve these photos, THANK YOU!

Does the police have a Wanted Poster that we can hang around town?
