Police were looking for information on a suspect who is wanted in connection with a series of burglaries in Bayside.

Seven homes have been targeted between Dec. 6 and May 5 with jewelry and electronics going missing, the NYPD said.

A 62-year-old man’s home was robbed near 161st Street and Grand Central Parkway. The suspect entered through a front window and made off with an assortment of electronics, police said.

On April 1 at around 7 p.m., the suspected thief entered the residence of a 73-year-old woman at 56th Avenue and 208th Street through the back window, according to the NYPD. Jewelry was removed from the home.

On April 17, a 45-year-old man reported that someone had entered through his side door and removed jewelry and a laptop.

Other incidences occurred March 29, April 29, May 3, and May 5, with three watches being reported stolen from the last home, the NYPD said.

An image was taken of the suspect in the last incident. He is shown to be between the ages of 40 and 50 with a blue “Brooklyn” baseball cap and a blue hooded sweat shirt.

The 111th Precinct, where the burglaries occurred, is asking the public assistance in identifying the suspect.
