A man who committed a robbery after threatening his victim with a hypodermic needle inside a subway train in Manhattan Saturday morning, may be the same suspect wanted for a string of similar robberies in the Bronx.

The robbery took place at approximately 8:30 a.m. on a northbound 1 train near the 86th Street stop, the Daily News reports.

On Friday, police identified a robbery suspect who in at least eight incidents in the Bronx threatened his victims with a hypodermic needle. According to the News, the robber's description in Saturday's incident matches the suspect.

Angel Anthony Cintron allegedly displayed a hypodermic needle before demanding property from his victims, who were all male, and as young as 14. Among the items stolen were iPads, iPods and cell phones, police said.

No one was hurt in the incidents.

Cintron, 38, is described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall, 145 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He has a scar underneath his left eye and on the bridge of his nose and tattoos with writing on both sides of his neck.

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS or at NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are kept strictly confidential.
