OZONE PARK, Queens (PIX11) — A crook shoved an 84-year-old man walking with a cane to the ground in Ozone Park and stole his wallet, authorities said Wednesday in a public appeal for tips.

The victim was walking near 88th Street and 102nd Road around 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 9 when the thief pushed him down from behind, officials said. The assailant then snatched the victim’s wallet and ran off, police said.

First responders evaluated the victim for what authorities described as minor injuries, though it wasn’t immediately clear whether he required hospitalization.

Investigators on Wednesday released surveillance images of the suspect, who was described as having orange or blond hair, in an effort to close the case.
