A man wearing a long black trench coat and wielding a knife robbed a woman inside her Sunnyside building last month, police said.

The suspect followed the 40-year-old victim into her 42nd Street building just before midnight on Oct. 25, authorities said.

Once inside, the suspect pulled out a knife and demanded the victim’s cellphone, police said. The victim handed over her phone and the suspect fled.

Police describe the suspect as a black man who is about 30 years old and has dreadlocks with yellow beads.
