Police from the 108th Precinct in Long Island City and Transit District 20 are looking for a man and a woman who assaulted a woman they tried to rob in Woodside last month.
On Friday, Sept. 24 just after 9 p.m. the duo approached a 69-year-old woman on the platform of the Roosevelt Avenue and 69th Street 7 subway station and demanded her bag. When the victim refused to comply, the two suspects proceeded to forcibly remove it with a sharp object causing lacerations to her arm, police said.
The assailants fled on foot in an unknown direction and the woman was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where she was listed in stable condition, police said.
The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspects. One is described as a dark-skinned man approximately 30-years-old and nearly 5’6” tall. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt, black pants, and a dark-colored Boston Red Sox baseball cap.
The second suspect is described as a dark-skinned woman approximately 30-years-old and nearly 5’6” tall. She was last seen wearing a light blue Adidas sweatshirt, blue jeans, and blue sneakers.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
