July 8, 2021 By Allie Griffin

A 66-year-old woman was shoved into a subway train by a stranger at a station in Jackson Heights on Sunday.

The woman was standing on the train platform inside the 74th Street–Roosevelt Avenue station at around 11:45 p.m. when another woman randomly pushed her into a northbound E train, which was stopped at the station, police said.

The 66-year-old fell into the safety chains of the train. EMS rushed her to Queens General Hospital for an abrasion to her knee and swelling to her ankle, police said.

The suspect in the attack is believed to be a Hispanic woman, approximately 25-years-old and 5 feet 3 inches tall.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

What’s going on?
Seriously, everyday is something like this on the news. It needs to STOP, we don’t pay City, State and Federal taxes to live with high crime, it’s unacceptable.

This is a daily event. I’d ask the mayor and governor not to let anymore out of the prisons and mental health institutions but I suspect they are already empty

If the perp is the person in the vid.

Then you have a lot to learn about accurate description writing.

Taller than 5 3.
Might not be a woman, although possible.
Might not be Hispanic.
I don’t think is 25 years old.

An Hispanic person. Hmmm. Yet again. Well, at least the person wasn’t black. This time.
