An area man has been connected to a pistol-whipping and robbery in Brooklyn Heights, officials said.
Police said that 32-year-old Tommy Hairston, a resident of George Street, was being sought for questioning on the September 3 robbery.
A 67-year-old man said that he was exiting his vehicle on Pierrepont Street just before 9 p.m. when Hairston allegedly ran up to him with a gun in his hand.
Hairston demanded that the victim hand over a bag he was carrying containing money.
When the victim refused, he allegedly pistol-whipped the victim.
Hairston was last seen fleeing the area in a white-colored automobile. The car was later recovered in East New York, although Hairston could not be found.
His victim was taken to New York Methodist Hospital with a large cut to his face.
Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward.
Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
