STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (PIX11) — One man is wanted for breaking into two Staten Island restaurants by shattering their windows, police said Friday.
The two incidents — which took place in St. George and New Dorp — happened on Nov. 12 and Dec. 27, res[ectively.
At about 5:30 a.m. Nov. 12, the suspect used a brick to break the front window of a deli on Castleton Avenue. He then stole about $600 cash from a register before running away on foot, police said.
More than a month later, on Dec. 27, the same man entered a pizza restaurant on Hylan Boulevard. Police said the man used a rock to break a window at the building at about 6:30 a.m. Property was taken from the incident, but police did not know what it was or what it was valued.
The man was last seen wearing a baseball hat, sweatshirt, dark pans and a face mask.
Police released surveillance photos taken from the St. George deli.
