Police are looking for a man who they said has robbed four women in the last month in Bronx.

The suspect is wanted for two robberies in May and two more in June. The suspect confronts women inside elevators or stairways of apartment buildings, pulls out a knife or box cutter and then forcibly robs them, police said.

Police said one of the attacks happened at a building on Jerome Avenue right across the street from Yankee Stadium. The suspect also hit up 1113 Grant Avenue and the 2800 block of University Avenue, according to police.

The suspect, who police said is bald with a tattoo on his right forearm, was seen on surveillance video inside an elevator at a building on Sheridan Avenue on June 9, 2012 where police said one of the robberies took place.
