Police from the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica and Transit District 20 are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a woman of her credit cards inside the Jamaica Center Parsons/Archer subway station last month.
The 51-year-old woman was inside the station around noon on Tuesday, March 8 when she realized the wallet in her purse was opened and her credit cards were missing.
An unknown man was captured on a surveillance camera at the Jimmy Jazz clothing store at 163-23 Jamaica Ave. later that day making approximately $1,000 worth of unauthorized credit card purchases using the victim’s credit cards, police said.
The suspect fled the store eastbound on Jamaica Avenue. He has close-cropped hair and was last seen wearing a black jacket over a Brooklyn Nets sweatshirt.
