A New York City father and his 4-year-old son were returning home from a New York Yankees game Monday night when they were held at gunpoint in a caught-on-video robbery, authorities said.

The armed robbery suspect followed them into the lobby of their apartment building around 9 p.m. near Sheridan Avenue and 161st Street in the Bronx, police said Wednesday.
