Father and 6-year-old son robbed leaving Yankees game: NYPD

A happy father and son day out to Yankees stadium ended with a mugger pointing a pistol in their faces in a Bronx hold-up caught on video, police said Wednesday.

The 40-year-old victim and 6-year-old son were returning to their home near Sheridan Ave. and 161st St. about 9 p.m. Monday when the crook followed them into their apartment building, cops said.

Surveillance video from inside the building shows the father and son, both sporting baseball caps, stepping into their Concourse Village building. The little child was playing with a souvenir Yankees baseball bat he got at the Bronx Bombers’ 6-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

The crook, wearing a hooded black winter coat, slowly follows the father and son into the lobby, where he raises his jacket and pulls a small handgun from his waistband.

The father steps in between the crook and his son, as the suspect waves around the pistol, demanding his belongings, cops said.

After a few more threats, the father hands over $30 to the crook, who runs off.

No injuries were reported.

Cops on Wednesday released the surveillance video and images of the suspect in the hopes someone recognizes him.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is urged to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
