His taste for Mexican food may lead cops right to his door.
A suspect in a May home invasion robbery unwittingly came face-to-face with one of the victims months later, when he ordered food from her at a Brooklyn Chipotle, police said Thursday.
The man made a run for it, but not before a surveillance camera snapped his photo, cops said.
He was part of a three-man robbery crew who climbed a fire escape to enter an apartment near Pacific St. and Buffalo Ave. in Crown Heights early May 18, police said.
One of the robbers waved a gun, and the trio tied up the three women who lived there, cops said.
They covered the women — ages 32, 20 and 18-years-old — with a blanket, demanded cash, and took off with $1,500, authorities said.
On Sunday, one of the creeps allegedly walked into the the Chipotle at the King’s Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin, accompanied by a young boy.
It turns out one of the victims worked behind the counter, and immediately recognized him.
She started grilling him for information, and when he became suspicious, she confronted him about the robbery, cops said.
With that, he grabbed his food with one hand, the boy with the other, and ran.
“He picks up the kid, picks up the Chipotle. He literally runs all the way through the mall, through the parking lot,” one police source said.
Police are asking anyone with information about his whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
