The police released footage of a bicyclist today who is wanted for swiping a cellphone and credit cards from a woman in Woodside earlier this month.

The cyclist allegedly rode up to a 51-year-old woman who was sitting on a bench opposite 53-03 Broadway and then snatched the victim’s cellphone and cellphone case. The incident took place at around 7:30 a.m. on May 2.

The suspect discovered that the cellphone case contained a credit card and bank card belonging to the victim.  A short time later, police said that the suspect was captured on surveillance video attempting to use the victim’s credit card at the C-Town Supermarket at 59-19 Roosevelt Ave. to buy groceries. The card was rejected and the suspect fled the store.

Anyone with information in regard to the identify of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com

He looks like the guy that stole the bike in Woodside a couple of days ago. Has silver ring on same hand. I wonder if he is one of the newly released guys our lovely mayor let out?!

Lame excuse

I’m in a desperate situation and I’m not robbing. Im trying all oportunities and gigs that can let me get some bucks.

Being in need does not mean turning into a criminal.

New York needs to remember all those undocumented aliens it’s been exploiting for so many years. Sure, here take a driver license so you can drive around and do jobs for cheap (no so cheap actually) and not pay taxes. No taxes, so now you can’t get stimulus package. Instead of allowing them to get driver license, they should have given them SS numbers, and encourage them to file taxes. Illegal or not, shouldn’t matter so they could get stimulus payment.
