Police are searching for a suspect who recently robbed a teenage boy in Ridgewood and used his personal information to deposit checks and withdraw money from an ATM.

The crimes in question began on July 22, when the 16-year-old victim was inside Grover Cleveland playground at approximately 4 p.m. and four men approached him, according to sources familiar with the investigation. The perpetrators demanded the victim’s wallet and one of the suspects wielded a knife, police said.

After the victim gave up his wallet, the suspects fled on foot. No injuries were reported.

The next day, according to a tweet from the 104th Precinct, one of the men connected to the robbery used the victim’s personal information and bank account to deposit checks at an ATM on July 23 at approximately 8:25 p.m.

The suspect deposited three checks totaling $7,090.78, and then he withdrew $950 from the account, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723 or Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200.
