Police are looking for a suspect who allegedly robbed several livery cop drivers in Queens.

Cops are looking for a man wanted in connection to a series of Queens robberies targeting livery cab drivers, police said.

The suspect struck four times, once in October, and three times in January, the NYPD said.

During the first incident, on Oct. 12, near 27-44 Ericsson St., in East Elmhurst, the suspect robbed a 49-year-old driver at gunpoint while a second suspect took the victim’s property, according to police.

The suspect robbed another driver on Jan. 8 near 1716 Stephen St. in Ridgewood. When he asked him to open the trunk, a second suspect, displayed a gun, and demanded his property, then struck the driver in the face leaving him with minor injuries, cops said. The victim did not comply, and the suspects fled without taking anything.

On Jan. 21 the suspect robbed a driver at gunpoint near 27-40 Ericsson St. Three days later, he tried to rob a driver around the same location, but was unsuccessful, the NYPD said

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect from the Jan. 21 robbery after he allegedly used the victim’s credit cards.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
