Police collared a man on Saturday who they say went on a stick-up spree targeting women around Windsor Terrace and Kensington.
Authorities have charged the 29-year-old Bedford-Stuyvesant resident for five gun-point robberies that took place in the neighborhoods last month.
The first was on Caton Avenue near E. Seventh Street at 2 am on Aug. 20, when the man allegedly approached a 54-year-old woman from behind before brandishing a firearm and demanding her property, police said. The victim lost her purse in the encounter, which contained $60, jewelry, and a cellphone, and would ultimately prove the alleged mugger’s most lucrative score, cops said.
Three days later, he allegedly pulled his gun on a 35-year-old woman outside the Fort Hamilton subway station on Aug. 23 at 12:30 am, making off with $45 and some gift cards, according to a report.
The suspect allegedly struck twice on Aug. 27, police said — first on Ocean Parkway near Caton Avenue at 12:49 am, and again on E. Third Street near Caton Avenue at 1:09 am.
The first victim, a 28-year-old woman, fought back and the man allegedly beat her with his pistol before fleeing with her property — $25 and a cellphone, police said. In the second encounter that morning, the victim, a 34-year-old woman, complied with the gunman’s demands, and handed over her property — this time, an even more paltry $12, a report said.
The alleged bandit’s final attack was on Aug. 29, on E. Third Street near Seeley Avenue at 11:10 pm, when he allegedly robbed a 21-year-old woman for her cellphone, $50, and a MetroCard, cops said.
Police spotted their suspect on Sept. 5, and cuffed him after a brief chase, a police spokeswoman said.
