The police are looking for a man who allegedly swiped an 85-year-old woman’s wallet at the 46th Street-Bliss subway station Friday after initially helping her get to the train.
The suspect helped the elderly woman get into the station at about 1 p.m. yesterday before removing her purse that contained $130 in cash, a debit card and personal papers, according to police.
The suspect then fled the location in an unknown direction. The woman was uninjured.
The police did obtain video footage of the suspect taken from 47-01 Queens Blvd prior to the incident.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his 30s, about 5 feet tall and 125 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, dark-colored shoes, and a blue baseball cap.
Anyone with information in regards 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).
Well said Giovanny
SunnysidePost comments are better than TV!
Yes but remember all the benefits these immigrants bring….so what if he mugs an old lady? Look at all the taxes he pays! and how much he contributes……these are the people that will make america great. We need to do away with ICE then more like him can get here and contribute to the rising crime and social burden….
Typical racist Trumpeter
It’s true though…..that’s what really bothers you!
Check your facts to find out how much immigrants contribute to the economy. Are you sure the “suspect” was here illegally? What’s really needed are elevators at various 7 train stations so the elderly and infirm can get to the train.
Major difference between “Immigrants and Illegals”..I suggest you should get the facts straight!
Ok …let’s start with California!
Yeah, check out their economy. Doing terrible, only 5th largest in the world. Why not 4th? You guessed it. Immigrants. thanks
Build a wall? Around the 7 train?
More police should be patrolling on foot and in cars in Sunnyside and Woodside!
Oh but they are! Haven’t you noticed all those little blue and white cars stenciled NYPD, and all those little men walking around in blue uniforms carrying little hand-held computers? They’re all over Queens Blvd., Roosevelt Ave., and 74th St.
Your tax dollars at work!
That lady needs to learn karate
Why didn’t Spiderman stop the thief? There are two versions of him in Queens
Build the wall
Such ignorant comment ……….What does building “A wall” have to do with this incident? If he was WHITE would there be a need for a wall as well? #ignorance#racism#noresults
No I don’t think so…the U.S. shares a Southern border with Mexico not Holland
Btw …why pick an “Italian” name if your so proud of your Latin Heritage?
Let me guess? Your from south America but your Grandfather was from Italy….so really your European which makes you feel a lot better about yourself….fugazzi
Hey Murphy- It’s hard to take someone seriously when they don’t know the difference between you’re and your.

A special place in hell for this human parasite. This guy should be squashed like a bug.
