    Authorities are looking for a man who allegedly tried to rob a woman at gunpoint as she held her 1-year-old niece in Queens last week -- and he turned the weapon at the child when she initially denied him her bag, police say.

    The 29-year-old woman was walking into a home near 135th Place and Sutter Avenue around dinnertime Friday when the stranger approached them, flashed a gun and demanded property, authorities say. 

    The woman refused -- and the man pointed the gun at the baby, police say. When he did that, the woman gave him her purse, which had $7,000 in it, and the man fled the scene in a dark-colored vehicle, authorities say. No injuries were reported.

    Police released surveillance video of the suspect (above). Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
