RICHMOND HILL—The NYPD was looking for a man who allegedly attacked and stole money from a female employee at a dry cleaners in Richmond Hill earlier this month.

At about 10:55 p.m. June 5, the suspect entered Hong Kong Dry Cleaners at 102-57 Jamaica Ave. and threw the 58-year-old female employee down to the floor, according to the police.

The suspect then kicked the woman multiple times and stole $3,000 in cash from her and fled, police said.

EMS responded and transported the victim to Jamaica Hospital where she received treatment for a facial fracture and swollen lip, officials said.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man who weighs roughly 300 pounds and has a heavy build and tattoos on his arm. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat and white sneakers.

No arrests have been made and the investigation was ongoing, a police spokesman said.
