The 109th Precinct was looking for a suspect who allegedly tried to rob a man at knifepoint on a Flushing street last week and then injured him during a struggle.

Law enforcement sources said the attempt took place Dec. 21 at 8 a.m. near the corner of Prince Street and Roosevelt Avenue.

According to police, a 36-year-old man was overheard talking about how he had just been paid, cops said. The suspect then approached the man, displayed a knife and demanded money.

Authorities said the assailant then grabbed the bag belonging to the man, resulting into a physical struggle with the victim. During the scuffle, police said the victim sustained a cut to his shoulder. The would-be thief then fled the scene on foot southbound along Prince Street, according to authorities.

No belongings were taken from the victim, cops said.

The victim was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens hospital in stable condition. He was treated for the laceration and later released.

No arrests have been made and the investigation was ongoing, according to police.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this person’s whereabouts to reach out via 800-577-TIPS. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
