Kid’s costume question leads to violent assault on board E train in Forest Hills: NYPD
By Emily Davenport

Cops were looking for two women who allegedly assaulted a straphanger on a subway in Forest Hills.

According to police, the 50-year-old female victim was riding a Queens-bound E train Nov. 2 at 1:30 p.m. with two unknown women. When the victim’s 8-year-old son asked her why the son of one of the other women was wearing a costume, the two women started an argument with the victim.

Law enforcement sources said the altercation quickly turned physical, with one woman putting the victim into a chokehold and the other punching the victim in the face and hitting her in the head with a cellphone.

Cops said the attackers exited the train when it reached the 71-Continental Avenues station and fled the station to parts unknown.

Cops described one suspect as a black woman with eyeglasses between the ages of 25 and 30 who was last seen wearing a gray shirt, dark-colored pants, a black jacket tied around her waist and carrying a black purse over her shoulder.

The second perpetrator was described as a black woman between the ages of 25 and 30 years who was last seen wearing a red baseball cap, a blue jacket and gray sweatpants.

Anyone with information in regard 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).
