Police have arrested a suspect in two Stuyvesant Town robberies of elderly men.
Police said 51-year-old Henry Huggins has been arrested and faces charges of first-degree burglary and second-degree robbery.
In the most recent robbery on Wednesday, police say a 71-year-old man was entering the lobby of his apartment building at about 6 p.m. when the suspect came up from behind, took his money and assaulted him, leaving him with a broken arm.
Several weeks ago, a 77-year-old man was robbed at Stuyvesant Town in a similar manner. He was also grabbed in the vestibule of his building at about 5:15 p.m.
The suspect took his money, and the victim was not injured.
There was no immediate information about an attorney for Huggins.
