This suspect allegedly tried to rob a victim in College Point before fleeing.

A suspect who pounded a victim’s face and held him at knifepoint before fleeing empty-handed in College Point last week remains at large.

According to police, the mugging occurred on Tuesday, June 7, at about 9:30 p.m. around Poppenhusen Avenue and 115th Street near MacNeil Park.

The 23-year-old male victim was walking with an acquaintance when an unidentified man approached him from behind with a knife, demanding his property.

When the victim refused, the attempted robber punched him in the face and threw the knife before fleeing the scene without any stolen items. The victim sustained a minor injury from the attack but refused medical attention. 

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic male, between 18 to 25 years old, standing at 5 foot 7 inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue baseball cap, black shirt and tan shorts. Police said that the victim identified the suspect by a Facebook photo but didn’t provide a name attached to the image.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
