By Sarina Trangle

RIDGEWOOD — The 104th Precinct announced Monday that officers had arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with four robberies in the second half of February.

Police said Bryant Aguilar faces four counts of robbery.

Officers were looking for two others they believe targeted Ridgewood residents.

Police warned Ridgewood residents Feb. 24 that several women had reported being the targets of knife-point robberies in Ridgewood. The victims said men followed them down the street and displayed weapons that resembled kitchen knives, according to police.

The precinct would not say whether it believed Aguilar worked alone or had been collaborating with others.
