Suspect (NYPD) and Woodside Houses (Google)

Aug. 14, 2019 By Shane O’Brien

Police are looking for a suspect who shot a man in the leg during the course of a robbery in Woodside last month.

According to the police, a 62-year-old man fell asleep on a bench at 50-18 Broadway at approximately 5 a.m. on July 20 and woke up to a man attempting to take his wallet from his pocket.

A struggle broke out when the victim realized what was happening. The suspect then produced a gun and shoot the victim in the left thigh. The bullet caused a shattered femur and the man was transported to Elmhurst General Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The suspect made off with $110 cash and the victim’s cell phone. He was caught on camera prior to the robbery by a surveillance camera at Woodside Housing Development and was observed to be a bearded black man wearing a striped T-shirt and white pants.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @ NYPDTips.

This guy doesn’t look like Black American person, he looks more like an African from African countries. Also way to go reporting this 1 month later. Why does it take so long to release this information?

Lets ask the honest question

de blasio wife’s One billion taxpayers program on public health would be much better spent on community services and workshops for young african american men in keeping them from becoming another statistic. One can only come to this conclusion by observing that most of the crime in NYC is committed by the same gender and age group. Why is this?


It’s either a black or Hispanic person committing crime almost 100 per cent of the time. Politically incorrect to talk about it.

ANOTHER racist Trump Lover?!

That’s completely false, but I guess Fox News has you accustomed to “alternative facts”

Lets ask the honest question

Instead of having the usual spontaneous response to supposedly trumpers and fox and whoever else that don’t think along your line. Why cant you just be honest & address the truth. And let us all work together on a solution to help those that need it. Every New York person strives for the same things in life, Good safe communities/ Jobs that pay a decent wage regardless of the level of your education/civil obedience/ reasonable rent and on and on. This can only be accomplished when we face the facts head on. We New Yorkers have banded together through tough times before and we can do it again. Let us show the politicians in DC that we are above all of their bickering and ~9 million people can live in harmony regardless of their affiliation.
