Cops are searching for this suspect who is connected to a string of thefts in Flushing.

Police are looking for a suspect wanted in a string of street thefts across Flushing, dating back to last fall.

In several of the robberies, the suspect punches the victim in the face before running off with the property, cops said.

The first incident occurred on November 12, 2012, near 31st Drive and 140th Street. The suspect approached the 58-year-old victim about 10: 15 p.m. as he was walking down the street, slugged him and attempted to take his property, police said. The perpetrator then fled before taking anything.

The suspect committed two more attempted robberies and six more thefts between November 3, 2013 and March 17 of this year.

Cops have released a photo connected to a Feb. 13 robbery near Maple Avenue and Main Street, where the suspect snatched a purse from a 40-year-old woman.

The photo shows the suspect entering a CVS store at 157-05 Cross Bay Blvd., then using the victim’s credit card to purchase items, according to officials.
