A teenage girl was allegedly beaten and robbed by a group of women inside the Woodhaven Boulevard R station in Elmhurst last week.
Police from the 110th Precinct and Transit District 20 are on the lookout for the five suspects who approached the 15-year-old victim who was on the mezzanine level of the subway stop at around 3:10 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27.
The women pushed the teen to the ground and began punching and kicking her in the head and body, police said. They proceeded to take her wallet before running out of the station in an unknown direction. The victim’s wallet contained a debit card and identification documents.
EMS responded to the crime scene and transported the girl to Long Island Jewish Forest Hills in stable condition. Later that day, two unauthorized purchases were made using the victim’s debit card. The first charge was for $7.20 and the second charge was for $200, police said.
The NYPD released video surveillance of the five suspects as they passed through the station’s turnstiles. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
