A knife-wielding goon robbed a senior citizen inside his Midwood house on Sept. 25, law enforcement officials said.

The 70-year-old victim was home when the fiend entered the residence on E. 4th Street near Avenue L at 8 pm, police said. The robber put a knife to the back of the victim’s head and demanded to be taken to the safe, according to cops.

The ruffian stole $4,500 dollars from the lockbox, then sped away in a black van, per the authorities.

The suspect is in his 30s and was wearing blue jeans and a blue sweater or vest at the time of the crime, officers stated.

The NYPD asks those with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, go to, or text-message tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”
