NEW YORK -- A man who committed a robbery after threatening his victim with a hypodermic needle inside a subway train in Manhattan Saturday morning, may be the same suspect wanted in a string of similar robberies in the Bronx.

No one was hurt in the incidents.
Cintron, 38, is described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall, 145 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He has a scar underneath his left eye and on the bridge of his nose and tattoos with writing on both sides of his neck.
