This man is wanted for attempted robbery of a 76-year-old and 53-year-old in Flushing.

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.

When the suspect was not able to rob the first victim,  he attempted to rob a 53-year-old woman. Again, he wasn’t able to take anything from her, then fled the area.

The 76-year-old sustained minor injuries in the incident.

Authorities describe the suspect as an Asian male, approximately 5’11”-6’2″ tall with pocked skin. He was last seen wearing a tan bubble jacket, tan pants and dark sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-557-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
