A robber is wanted by police for committing two robberies within a two hour period in the Bronx on Wednesday morning.

At around 5:30 a.m. a woman in her twenties was approached from behind with the man pointing a dark object at her. He got away with her cellphone and debit card.

Then, at 7:30 a.m. a 28-year old pushing a stroller was encountered from behind with the man demanding her watch, and then when he saw her purse underneath the stroller he tried to take that as well.

The woman resisted and yelled for help, causing the robber to be alarmed, but quickly snatched her cell phone out of her hand before running away.
