The NYPD is searching for this suspect, wanted for an armed robbery in Ozone Park.

Police have apprehended one suspect wanted for an armed robbery in Ozone Park, but his accomplice remains on the loose.

The two suspects, one armed with a gun, approached their 69-year-old male victim opposite a location on 98th Street near Liberty Avenue on Jan. 31 at 7:53 p.m. and demanded money, police said.

According to authorities, the suspects punched the victim in the face, removed an undetermined amount of money from his pocket and fled the scene.

Officers from the 106th Precinct responded to the incident; the victim refused medical attention. After conducting a canvass search, officers apprehended one of the suspects — identified as Robert Beharry, 26, of 108th Street in Ozone Park — opposite a location on 97th Street.

Beharry has been charged with first-degree robbery, gang assault, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and harassment, law enforcement officials announced.

Anyone with information in regards to identity or whereabouts of the second suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
