The police are looking for a man who punched and kicked two people as they were entering their Sunnyside apartment Monday before stealing their personal belongings.
The suspect allegedly followed the victims—a 50-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman—into a residential building in the vicinity of 44th Street and 43rd Avenue at around 8:20 p.m. before attacking them.
The man then grabbed the woman’s purse that contained a cellphone, credit cards and personal items before fleeing northbound on 44th Street on an E-bike.
The victims were taken to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.
The suspect is described as being approximately 40 years of age, with a medium build and bald. He was last seen wearing dark colored clothing.
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).
