Police are looking for a suspect who attempted to rob two women, including a 76-year-old, in Flushing last week.
On Monday, January 7, at around 4:40 p.m. in the vicinity of Kissena Boulevard and Beech Avenue, the suspect pushed the 76-year-old victim to the ground and attempted to take her property, said police.
