Wanted: Police are looking for this man, who was caught on tape robbing a Williamsburg couple at gunpoint at Kingsland Avenue.

Cops are hunting the gunman who robbed a couple in Williamsburg on Aug. 9.

The victim, 25, told police the pistol-packing perp approached him and his girlfriend on Kingsland Avenue near Frost Street at 3:40 a.m., when he snatched the woman’s purse, which contained a watch and $80.

The bandit fled with his loot into a gray car, before peeling off heading southbound on Woodpoint Road, according to the authorities.

Investigators tracked down a surveillance camera that offered a clear vantage of the robbery and nabbed footage of the suspect, who was spotted wearing a white hat, T-shirt, sweatpants and white sneakers, cops said.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @ NYPDTips.

The only one obsessed with the term ‘racist’ is Henry Ford. Don’t forget that folks. Oh and God bless America, God Bless Donald Trump and MAGA!
