Police are looking for two gun-toting suspects who beat up a man in Woodside last night and stole his e-bike, phone and wallet.
The incident occurred in front of 41-45 71st St. at around 10:15 p.m., according to the NYPD.
The victim, a 23-year-old man, was hurled to the ground by two unknown suspects who proceeded to beat him with a blunt object that the victim said was a metal bar. The two men also threatened the victim with a handgun, police said.
The suspects then fled the crime scene in an unknown direction.
The victim was taken to Elmhurst General Hospital in a stable condition with complaints of pain to his left forearm.
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, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
All calls are strictly confidential.
just install a gps tracker in your bike. they wont know its there until the cops are at their door. then you can sue them in court for damages to your bike.
this did not happen in the projects –
The projects need a lot more patrol.
While 71st street does not have much to with Sunnyside it shows how close these worthless crap people came to Sunnyside. We know crime in our area is increasing despite the pretty picture politicians trying to paint. We talking among ourselves here makes no difference, take it to twitter and every time anyone says “crime is down” list all these crimes and how they did not catch anyone. I think when they say “crime is down” they are looking at the number of arrests… That’s the problem. If you don’t make an arrest, there is no crime to report?
Why can’t SS Post tag these crimes as UNSOLVED, and then go back and tag them SOLVED when they are solved or apprehended? We could easily see how many dirtbags go free. SS Post, please introduce tags for these entries. Thank you.
Crimes are at all time high in NYC. We need more police officers on foot patrol and more undercover officers to help reduce crimes.
