Cops are looking for a man who robbed a woman at gunpoint in Gramercy shortly after midnight on Sunday.
Police said the woman was walking past 201 East 20th Street at Third Avenue when the man approached her, pulled out a small, black handgun and demanded her cash. The woman turned over her money, putting it into a bag the man had and he fled the scene. She was uninjured in the incident. It isn’t clear how much money she lost and police don’t have a description of the suspect although he was caught in some grainy surveillance footage.
