BOROUGH PARK — Cops are looking for a man they believe committed a variety of thefts inside apartment buildings in Borough Park, Greenwood Heights and Park Slope.

In one Borough Park incident, which took place on Thursday, Feb. 6 at around 6:30 a.m., the suspect approached a 30-year-old woman inside a building at Ninth Avenue and 49th Street and demanded money. He stole $100 and exposed himself to the victim before fleeing.

Three days later, on Feb. 9 at around 9 a.m., cops say he stole $3 from a 40-year-old woman inside an apartment building near Ninth Avenue and 42nd Street.

The same day at around noon, the suspect crept up behind a 37-year old woman inside an apartment building at McDonald Avenue and Greenwood Avenue, and stole money from her.
