Several laundromats in Woodside and Astoria were targeted in a string of robberies that were reported to police last week, along with a robbery that took place at a Woodside Dunkin Donuts two months ago—all involving one suspect—according to the NYPD.

A police investigation revealed that the suspect– believed to be a male black in his 20s–is at the center of at least four robberies, the first one taking place at Dunkin Donuts at 58-01 Woodside Ave. on Sept. 16 at around 6:00 a.m. In this incident, the suspect ordered and paid for a coffee, and then reached over the counter when the female employee opened the cash register, police said.

The employee held him off initially, but the suspect made his way around the counter and stole three cash trays from the register before bolting from the spot, police said. The amount of money taken has not been determined yet.

A second incident was reported to police that took place on Nov. 6, when at around 11:45 p.m., a 42-year-old employee at New Wash World on 31-11 31st St. found that money was missing from the register, police said. Upon police investigation, it was determined that the suspect managed to go behind the unsecured counter and steal around $1,390.

Five days later, at L&Z Laundromat, located at 47-51 47th St., a 25-year-old employee also discovered cash missing from the register at around 11:10 p.m., police said. Around $833 was stolen from the spot, police found. Police linked the crime to the suspect.

The next morning, around 5:30 a.m., the suspect entered 55 Laundromat & Cleaners on the corner of 55th Street and Roosevelt Avenue and pushed a 68-year-old employee at the counter away from the register, and managed to take $20 from it before fleeing, police said. The employee was not seriously injured, and refused medical attention at the scene.

Police have released video and photos of the suspect from the Nov. 11 and Nov. 12 incidents. He was last seen wearing a blue baseball cap, a black jacket, and blue jeans.

The should check allí the new welfare hotels sprouting up along Quenns Blvd. All you ASSHOLES who voted for BIG BIRD, I hope you get what’s coming to you


Blame everything on Trump! PS. Fear not Jimmy & Bill will easily win re election. People with criminal records, on food stamps, illegal aliens and the other chosen ones Really count!


They should apply for a search warrant for Bruno’s basement apartment. I heard there is a lot of coin there. He just paid the bill for the Blue T-shirts he gave out with nickels, dimes and quarters.

Moronoman Empire Strikes Back and Fails!

Everybody’s got loads of laundry to do these days! We’ve got to have cash trays on hand for everyone to chip in! America runs on Dunkin! May God bless us.


These robberies are becoming more brazen. When will there be police patrolling around Woodside and Sunnyside? I realize that Jimmy and Bill are more concerned about safe bike paths rather than “quality of life” issues, but someone is going to get hurt or killed. Can’t even walk Roosevelt safely. Dunkin and 55 laundry mat are both cross the street from schools. 2 months and still not caught? Pictures of the creep and no one knows him? Only in New York!! Thanks Jimmy and Bill De B!


If Dunkin Donuts had some footage of this dude maybe he could have been caught before he robbed other places. This guy has been walking around the neighborhood for 2 months and nobody recognizes him?

America guns on Dunkin

Sounds like he had to wash off the grease stains from his Pizza Hut robbery before grabbing a quick breakfast.
