    Officials are offering a $22,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who shot two people after they wouldn’t give him cash in separate robberies on Staten Island this summer.

    The man shot a 28-year-old woman in the face June 17 and a 18-year-old man in the hand June 24, after both victims refused to give him money in robberies in the Saint George area, according to the NYPD.

    Both victims survived the shootings, but the Staten Island Advance reports that the woman was pregnant at the time and lost her unborn child due to complications from her injuries.

    The NYPD is putting up $10,000 for information that leads to the robber’s arrest and conviction and the mayor’s office is matching that amount. Crime Stoppers is providing another $2,000 reward. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
