Cops are looking to question this man in connection to the gunpoint robbery of a UPS driver in Ridgewood.

Police need the public’s help in finding the gunman who robbed a UPS driver at gunpoint on a Ridgewood street last week.

The NYPD released on Tuesday, Jan. 31, images of an individual wanted for questioning in connection with the holdup that occurred on Stanhope Street near Seneca Avenue at 2:10 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

 

According to law enforcement agents, the 35-year-old UPS truck driver was making a delivery to a Stanhope Street home when he was approached by an unknown individual who brandished a silver firearm and demanded cash from the truck driver.

The gun-toting crook then fled the location in a gray Honda Accord in an unknown direction with approximately $400, police said.
