In the first attack, the suspect followed the woman into an apartment building shortly after midnight. The woman screamed for help after he demanded money. That’s when police say the woman was punched in the face and the thief made off with $1500.

The same scenario was repeated in the second, third and fourth attacks. The suspect followed his victims into buildings and demanded money. The woman was pushed to the ground in the second attack and punched in the face in the third and fourth attacks. Police say the suspect made off with a total of $850 in the last three attacks.
