A robber surprised a construction worker while he was at a job site in Long Island City last week, punching the man before taking off with his tools, police said.
The 29-year-old victim was working at a Euda Construction Company site located on 10th Street near 38th Avenue just after 2 p.m. on March 12 when the suspect approached him, cops said.
The suspect, who was pushing a grocery cart, then punched the construction worker, took a Hilti drill, Milwaukee camera and two nail guns, and fled.
Police have released video footage of the alleged robber and describe the man as black, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hat, blue jeans and a brown coat.
