Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the man responsible for one robbery, three attempted robberies and five grand larcenies over the last six months, with the most recent attack coming on March 17.

The first six incidents occurred between the hours of 8:40 p.m. and 1:20 a.m. during a nearly four-week spree between Nov. 3 and Nov. 29 throughout the greater Flushing area.
