Nassau County police have released a photograph of a man wanted in connection with the robbery of an 85-year-old woman last week.

The photograph was from a surveillance camera at a Chase ATM in Elmont where the man withdrew money April 2 using the victim’s ATM card and pin number, police said.

He had gotten the card and number from her at knife point after abducting her and carjacking her vehicle in a Walmart parking lot in Westbury, police said.

Police said there were “strong similarities” between that crime and one the next day, when a man accosted an 83-year-old woman in an East Rockaway parking lot.

That woman pulled free and ran from her vehicle, police said.
