MORRIS HEIGHTS, the Bronx — Police believe the same woman is behind two armed robberies — one unsuccessful — in Morris Heights this year.  

The most recent happened just after 7 p.m. May 10, when the female suspect approached a man, 54, inside the elevator of 10 Richmond Plaza, a residential building in the Bronx neighborhood. Police say she tried to take his wallet, but was unsuccessful.

On March 13, around the same time of day, police say a 21-year-old woman was robbed at knifepoint at an ATM inside a Chase bank at 1755 University Ave. The suspect stole $780 in cash and a debit card.

Police say the suspect is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 120 pounds with a thin build, and is 28 to 30 years old. She has green eyes and light brown hair.
