Police say they have identified a suspect wanted in connection with three recent gunpoint robberies in the Bronx. They sent out video (see above) of the suspect, David Piparo, 48, of City Island, this afternoon.
Piparo is wanted for his alleged involvement in the failed robbery of the We Buy Gold pawn shop on Bruckner Boulevard on Nov. 10 and two robberies of Game Stop -- one of the video game chain store at 43 Westchester Square, the other of the Game Stop at 2163 White Plains Rd.
In each case, the suspect brandished a black handgun and fled on foot, police say. Piparo is described as being 5-foot-10, 195 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. He has a scar under one eye and multiple tattoos.
