Police are searching for a man who tried to rob a woman inside of the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens subway station earlier this month.

Authorities say that a 49-year-old woman was exiting the station around 7:20 p.m. on July 15 when an unidentified man approached her and demanded her property. The victim refused and fled the station, while the man fled in the opposite direction.

Nothing was stolen and nobody was hurt in the incident, police said.

Authorities released surveillance video and a photo of the suspect on July 26.
