Man Threatens The Life of Woman Inside Woodside Dunkin’ Donuts, Takes Cash: NYPD

Suspect (NYPD) and Google Maps

Feb. 17, 2020 By Kristen Torres

A man approached a woman inside a Dunkin’ Donuts store in Woodside earlier this month and threatened to kill her and her dog if she didn’t hand over $20, police said.

The suspect walked up to a 42-year-old woman inside the 61-12 Roosevelt Ave. store on Feb. 6 around 2:30 p.m. and threatened to kill her and her pooch if she didn’t agree to fork over the cash.

The suspect then took $20 from the woman and fled in an unknown direction.

Police describe the suspect as a light-skinned male with blond hair and blue eyes. He’s approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and was last seen wearing a black jacket and no shirt.

Anyone with information in regard 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).

In no particular order, here are some of the most surprisingly safe big cities in America.

New York City, New York
Los Angeles, California
Washington, District of Columbia
Chicago, Illinois
Boston, Massachusetts

The Big Apple often gets a bad rap as being one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, but when you look at the crime data, you can clearly see that it’s not a fair title.

While 49% of Americans believe New York to be either fairly unsafe or very unsafe, it actually has a murder rate per 100,000 (5) that is less than one quarter of that in Philadelphia (21.5), the most surprisingly dangerous big city in America.

Incidents of reported rape and vehicle theft are also lower in New York City than any of the others on the list, 14 per 100,000 and 98 per 100,000 respectively.

@ABoondy- Nobody was killed. You’re a bit dramatic. You’re exponentially more likely to die from Republicans policy on healthcare just look at Louisiana, Alabama Oklahoma and Indiana and the rest of the Republican strongholds, or the flu. Crime is actually higher in those very same states too, look it up. You sound pretty uninformed.

This is terrible. I usually go there and must say that I never ever see cops inside or in area.
Hope they catch this low life.

The picture is in the article and video.?. I’ll vote Republican when you tell me why Republican Les Wexner gave Jeffrey Epstein a sixty six million dollar townhouse.

in the last split second, its your life and your registered fire arm against the killer that is willing to take your life for nothing. its time for good nyc citizens to arm themselves against these criminals. the liberal agenda has made it possible for criminals to kill anyone and walk out of the precinct the same day thanks to liberal bail reforms. there is nobody to help you. the cops only show up once someone is dead. nyc citizens need to arm themselves and protect their families against these killers.
