An eyeglass bandit stole glasses right off the face of two teenagers inside the 33rd Street 7 train subway station earlier this month.
The woman snatched the glasses off a 19-year-old girl and, moments later, she swiped a pair off a 14-year-old girl’s face inside the Sunnyside/Long Island City station on Feb. 7 at 3:25 p.m., police said.
The woman, who is believed to be 30 to 40 years old, ran off on Queens Boulevard, heading west. She was last seen wearing all dark clothing, police said.
Both victims sustained scratches to their faces as a result of the eyeglass snatching.
