Police are searching for a man and a woman wanted for the assault and attempted robbery of an elderly man in Williamsburg last month.
On April 12, 2019, just after midnight, a 78-year-old man was pushing a cart full of recycled bottles near 215 Maujer St. As he bent down to pick up a bottle, his cart accidentally rolled into a parked car.
The unidentified man and woman then got out of the vehicle and began demanding money to repair the car door. The man took out a knife and began searching the victim’s pockets for money, while the woman kept a lookout. The man then slashed the victim on the left side of his face before both suspects fled the scene.
