After releasing this suspect sketch and photo earlier this month, cops have arrested a man in a robbery of a 90-year-old man outside a Long Island City supermarket.


Police have arrested a suspect who is accused of grabbing a 90-year-old man outside of a Long Island City supermarket and making him drive to ATMs to withdraw money.

Wade Hairston, 28, of Astoria, has been charged with robbery, criminal obstruction of breathing, unlawful imprisonment and harassment in the July 22 incident, cops said.

The victim was walking to his car outside of the Stop & Shop on 48th Street at about 10:45 a.m. that day when the suspect grabbed him by the neck, police said.  The suspect then told him to hand over his wallet and demanded his PIN number before forcing the victim drive to two locations, where he took out cash from ATMs.
