Cops are looking to question a man who may know something about an attempted robbery that left a diner employee injured in Astoria last month.

According to police, at 3:25 a.m. on Dec. 19, 2018, two unknown men were trying to take a secured electric bike from behind the Bel-Air Diner, located at 31-91 21st St.

When an employee tried to intervene, law enforcement sources said, one of the suspects pulled out a knife and slashed the employee. The perpetrators then fled the scene, one on foot and the other on a scooter, without any property.

Officers from the 114th Precinct and EMS responded to the scene. Paramedics took the victim to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was treated for non-life-threatening lacerations to the torso and leg.

The individual sought for questioning is described as a Hispanic man and was last seen wearing a light-colored hooded shirt and riding a shiny blue electric bike. Police said the e-bike was not the one which the suspects attempted to steal.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website, on Twitter @NYPDTips or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
