Gunman attracts older man with gun in NYC parking garage

A gunman pulled a pistol on an elderly man in a robbery of a Bronx parking garage – before he and three others stole a car to flee inside, according to police and video.

Surveillance of the raid just before 4am Wednesday shows the elderly man calmly loading several boxes onto the back of a blue SUV while in the garage on Franklin Avenue in Morrisania.

A man wearing a puffy black jacket with the hood pulled up stands with his back to him near the front of his SUV – before suddenly hopping around, gun drawn, aiming at the driver.

The gunman – wearing a red face mask – runs towards him, still aiming the pistol throughout the approach.

The elderly driver then pulls what appears to be a wallet from his left back pocket to hand it to the gunman, who first runs into the parking garage’s office and raises the gun there.

The armed suspect then again runs towards the elderly motorist, who had tried to shelter behind the trunk of his car before this time running away.

Three others, also wearing hoods and face masks, then joined the shooter in storming the office, where they held a 20-year-old garage attendant and stole $200 cash and his cell phone, the NYPD said.

They also took a car key, with one of the thugs wearing blue surgical gloves using the key fob to locate the car it belonged to, a Toyota Camry, in which the four escaped.

None of their victims were injured, police said.
