Woman Lets Armed Man Into Bronx Building Lobby, Gets Robbed: Police

Police are looking for a man in his mid 20s who knocked on the door of a Bronx apartment building and robbed an unassuming woman at gunpoint once she let him in.

Authorities say the 56-year-old woman had just entered her building in Fordham on a Sunday morning in late February when she heard a knock at the building door. She opened the front door and let the suspect, who was armed with a gun, inside.

The suspect followed the woman into the lobby, took her pocketbook and fled.

No injuries were reported.

Police released surveillance video of the suspect walking into the building. He's described as being about 25 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. 

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-(800)-577-TIPS.
