A thug accused of preying on four women in their Bronx building elevators and hallways was refused bail yesterday by a tough-talking judge who told him that if convicted, he would probably die in jail.
Pablo Gomez, 32, was indicted on more than 30 counts of robbery, criminal possession of stolen property and a battery of other charges for the two-week knifepoint robbery spree — which included an attack on a 25-year-old woman who was clutching her 3-year-old daughter.
The petty thief, who usually snatched gold chains and purses, was busted in Pennsylvania shortly after the NYPD released surveillance video of one of the elevator attacks.
None of the victims was physically hurt.
Gomez, who Assistant District Attorney Debra Guarnieri says has an extensive robbery record, pleaded not guilty before state Supreme Court Justice Margaret Clancy.
“If convicted, any possible sentence will exceed the balance of his life expectancy,” Clancy said.
He faces up to 25 years in prison for each robbery.
