The suspect and an entrance to Queens Plaza subway station (NYPD and Google Maps)

Police are looking for a knife-wielding man who robbed a woman at the Queens Plaza subway station Sunday.

The incident comes just a little over two weeks since a homeless man brutally robbed and attacked a 57-year-old woman with a hammer as she walked down a flight of steps at the same station on Feb. 24. The alleged perpetrator in that case has been arrested.

The suspect in the latest incident allegedly approached a 31-year-old woman at around 5:45 a.m. as she too was walking down a flight of steps at an entrance to the Queens Plaza subway station.

The perpetrator in this case pulled out a knife before threatening her and demanding cash, police said.

The victim handed over $200 cash and the suspect then fled into the subway system. The woman was not injured, police said.

Police released a video of the suspect jumping over a turnstile at the station.

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 Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/

Woman got hit in the head with a hammer exactly in the same spot last night at 11pm, robbed and left in critical condition. Maybe it is the same person. Seems to me, there is no police presence there. This could have been avoided.

Bail Reform

Who was behind the bail reforms in NY? I am assuming the so called “progressive”, but who were they?

Look to the Democratic Black controlled state legislature. They are just unwilling to give in on bail reform. No matter what crime stats that you confront them with they will just keep saying that there is no evidence that bail reform is responsible for the sharp increase in crime.

This is what black and progressive politicians want. They don’t want black people in jail. No mass incarceration. If a few Asians have to die for the cause then so be it. If you can’t keep black people from committing crime change the laws!

This clearly shows that guns aren’t the main thing that causes crime. People do!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wake up and stop being politically correct.

Liberal politicians opened the floodgates of criminality that Giuliani shut and Bloomberg had enough sense to keep it closed.

Gullible Republicans believe Myths, Fairytales and Conspiracies

Nobody received “Free Mets Tickets”. DiBlasio suggested it but was never implemented.
