A terrified 4-year-old girl who was victimized by a robbery suspect is still living in fear after a cowardly thug took cash right from her hand and stole her loved pink “Frozen” glove.

The heartbroken mother told the New York Daily News on Thursday that the petrified toddler now fears the assailant will return to take her other glove.

“She thought that the guy was after her gloves and is going to come back, that’s terrifying for a 4-year-old” the mom who refused to be identified said.

The criminal actually wanted the $300 the child was clutching after she helped her mom pull the money from the ATM at a Chase Bank on Broadway near W. 70th St in Manhattan at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The lowlife thug committed the robbery while the tot’s 5-month-old sister sat in a stroller.

New York City cops said the suspect had minutes earlier mugged an 81-year-old woman at a nearby post office.

The elderly victim suffered minor injuries.

NYPD officials have released surveillance photos of the brazen robbery suspect.

“In cases like these, it’s unusual — an elderly (woman) robbed and then a 4-year-old. We need the public’s help. We are going to go after this guy,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Thursday.
