Police are looking for a man suspected of slashing a 26-year-old woman’s throat inside the lobby of a Jamaica building last week after she reportedly resisted his advances.

The suspect approached the victim in the lobby of a building on 171st Street near Jamaica Avenue at about 5:20 a.m., on Oct. 1, cops said. He started talking to the woman, but, not wanting to speak with him, she turned away. The man then grabbed her from behind and used a cutting instrument to slash her neck.

According to published reports, the suspect was trying to ask the woman on a date before attacking her.

The victim was taken to a local hospital, where she was listed in critical but stable condition.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect and describe him as black or Hispanic, about 20 years-old, 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, with brown eyes and short black hair. He was last seen wearing black sneakers and blue jeans.


Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
