A 96-year-old Queens man was mugged for all of $5 by a man half his age, police said Tuesday.

The victim was knocked to the ground but escaped serious injury in Thursday’s incident.

His attacker is still being sought.

The NYPD released surveillance photos taken in an elevator at the victim’s building on 54th St. in Woodside.

The suspect is described as a short black man in his 40s. He was clad all in black at the time, wearing a parka, knitted ski cap, glove and pants.
