Police released video on Saturday of a man who allegedly robbed a woman at knifepoint and assaulted her on a Rego Park street last week.

According to authorities, the robbery took place at 8:20 p.m. on Wednesday night, Jan. 18, at the corner of 65th Avenue and 99th Street.

 

Law enforcement sources said the victim was walking through the area when she was approached by the suspect, who is described as a black male standing 5 foot 8 inches tall and wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt. Police said the perpetrator displayed a knife, then punched the woman in the face and grabbed her purse, which contained an iPhone and credit card.

The suspect then fled the location on foot eastbound on 65th Avenue toward 102nd Street.

Officers from the 112th Precinct responded to the incident; the victim suffered bruises to her face, but refused medical attention.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.

I agree that if you plan to stay with a cheater don't try to find any information. However, in my case I needed it in my state in order to file for a divorce and come out of the relationship. You can't just say I think courts want proof or you end up spending a lot of time and money to fight it out! Finding out was hard, but I was relieved that I wasn't crazy and it's making my divorce go a lot smoother. He would never confess; therefore, I did the best thing for me...find out, no doubt, move on!!!contact hotcyberlord@gmail.com.. or text his phone +15402277725 he's a professional and will surely help you out,tell him from Ninah
