A Brooklyn man has been arrested for robbing a parking attendant at gunpoint in Forest Hills last month.

Judah Pilgrim, 21, was arrested Wednesday and charged with robbery, grand larceny and unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Police say that Pilgrim walked into a garage at 92-77 Queens Boulevard at around 2:20 p.m. on June 30 and then pulled out a gun. He approached the attendant, 59, and told him that he was taking a car. 

The attendant ran down the garage hallway to try and escape, but Pilgrim chased after him. Pilgrim hit the victim over the head with the gun and tried to drag him back into the garage, but was unable to move him.

Pilgrim then went back into the garage and found a Kia Sportage with the keys still inside. He hopped in the car and drove away on Queens Boulevard.

Emergency responders treated the attendant for a head laceration at the scene.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
