The brother of the suspected Times Square shooting who wounded a 4-year-old girl and two others in May was arrested Tuesday for allegedly trying to rob tourists at the Crossroads of the World, law enforcement sources said.
Joshua Muhammad, 30, was busted at about 4:30 p.m. on West 44th Street and Seventh Avenue — the same corner where gunfire broke out two months ago, the sources said.
The CD peddler and an accomplice, who was also arrested, allegedly tried to rip off a family visiting from North Carolina, according to the sources.
Muhammad was being held at the Midtown Precinct South.
Sources said that his brother is Farrakhan Muhammad, who has been charged with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, in connection with the horrifying May 8 shooting.
Muhammad, 31, allegedly fled to Florida after the bloodshed, where he was arrested on May 12. He was extradited to New York later that month.
Muhammad has denied responsibility for the shooting.
