Help cops find a teen who robbed a man at knifepoint in the Ditmas Avenue F station last week.

The 20-year-old male victim and the suspect had arranged to meet on Thursday, May 4, at 4pm, at the Ditmas Avenue F train station on Mcdonald Avenue, so the suspect could buy two jackets from the victim, said cops.

But instead, the suspect brandished a knife and stole the jackets before fleeing the scene, said police. The jackets were valued at $400.

There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.

The suspect is described by police as a Hispanic male, approximately 18-years-old, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 150 pounds, with long black hair in a ponytail.
