Police are looking for a man who slashed a woman in the face with a scalpel outside a Woodside strip club on Wednesday night.

The incident occurred as the 27-year-old woman was entering Privileged Gentleman’s Club at 49-14 Queens Blvd. at about 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28, according to police.

The woman was grabbed from behind by an unknown man outside the club and slashed across the face with a blade. The attack left the woman with facial lacerations and she was transported to Elmhurst Hospital in a stable condition.

The suspect fled the scene on foot in a westbound direction on Queens Boulevard.

This is not the first violent incident to take place outside the strip club.

In 2015, when the establishment was called Secrets, a man was shot dead following a dispute between club goers. In 2016, following a robbery, authorities shut the club down.

The police are seeking the public’s help in finding the man responsible for Wednesday’s incident.

Anyone with information 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, on Twitter @ NYPDTips.

The strip club was previously called Secrets. It was shut down after a series of violent incidents. (Photo: Sunnyside Post 2016)

Man, I lived around the corner from there and had my holy communion party in that knights of colombus back in 1980. I used to ride my bike up and down this street all the time. Fortunately we got a few bucks together and got the HELL out of TOWN in 1984 and moved to lovely Whitestone where we still reside. I enjoy looking at the ole crappy neighborhood even all these years later and feeling quite positive leaving was a great decision

sunnyside 4 ever

I always find it interesting that the same people who believe that they made the right decision in moving out of Sunnyside always keep abreast of what’s going on in Sunnyside. Why is that?

This place was good about 20 years ago, now its all thugs ,trouble spot for sure. Those projects are local losers a lot of this clientele comes from other neighborhood


You guys are unfairly blaming the strip joint. Maybe this was actually caused by the Knights of Columbus next door.?

Why are we fine with this business?

Strip clubs and shelters.

Does anyone knows how to request to shut them down? Plead? Signatures? Strike? Talk/meet with who?


Let’s see…

Strip clubs: OK
Homeless shelters: NOT OK

Way to get your priorities, Sunnyside!!


The impoverished housing projects are to blame. They put the rest of the public’s safety at risk.
