Police are looking for a man who threatened an E train passenger with a gun.

A woman sitting on an E train in Jackson Heights last week was threatened twice by a man carrying a gun, according to police.

On Oct. 14 at 8:40 a.m., a 33-year-old female was on a Manhattan-bound E train near Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue. A man sat next to her and threatened to slap her, according to the NYPD. She moved to another location on the train when the man followed her and lifted his shirt to expose the handle of a gun.

 

The victim left the train and the suspect stayed on. There were no injuries, police said.

The suspect is described as a male in his 30s, approximately 6 feet tall and wearing a black baseball hat, black sneakers, green jacket, and black jeans.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
