Suspect (NYPD)

July 1, 2021 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a tattoo-clad man who stole a teenage girl’s phone on the 7 train in Woodside last month.

The alleged thief grabbed an iPhone out of the hands of a 17-year-old girl as she sat inside a 7 train that was stopped at the 69th Street station at 3:30 p.m. on June 19.

He then ran off with the phone, police said.

The NYPD described the suspect as a Hispanic man with tattoos over both eyebrows.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Jails are a business, and nyc is the client. We must of had a hefty monthly bill to have people like this running amok. Back in the days a guy like this would be picked up pretty quick, he is quite distinguished with all the ink on his face.

That poor young man. If we used the money wasted on the NYPD to fund programs I’m sure he’d turn his life around.

That's just putting lipstick on a pig.

And you know it.

It starts from the home. Upbringing.

There isn’t a culture of violence and crime? Really? You can’t think of one…really? Ones whose music glorifies it, whose leaders excuse it, who their apologists create complex explanations to justify it. Not one huh.

So many crimes in nyc are occuring due to people feeling almost like they have the right to steal things they want. Most crimes have nothing to do with basic needs. Its not about being hungry or wanting a loaf of bread.

Giuliani is a clown now, but back in the day, he and the NYPD did something smart. They went heavily after small crimes, and by doing so, things started to be under control. If you allow criminals like this guy another chance, then bigger crimes will happen. It’s not rocket science.
So find this guy, put him away for life, no parole. Too harsh? Well, it was his choice.
