NYPD Releases Video of Man who Allegedly Helped Elderly Woman Get on Train, Then Stole Wallet


July 22, 2018 By Christian Murray

The police have released video footage of a man who allegedly swiped an 85-year-old woman’s wallet at the 46thStreet-Bliss subway station earlier this month after initially helping her get to the train.

The suspect helped the elderly woman get into the station at about 1 p.m. on Friday, July 13, before removing her purse that contained $130 in cash, a debit card and personal papers, according to police.

The suspect then fled the location in an unknown direction. The woman was uninjured.

The police obtained video footage of the suspect taken from 47-01 Queens Blvd prior to the incident.

The suspect is described as Hispanic and last seen wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, dark-colored shoes, and a blue baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

So he is hispanic. Doesn’t make all hispanics bad. You racist fools need to get a life. If he were white, would you be calling him a white bastard? Have him jailed right away? Yes or No?????


Little confusing. Did he throw the baseball cap away and change his shoes?


If he is an undocumented immigrant and found guilty, should he be deported?
I think so.


That is one of the stupidest remark yet, “undocumented immigrant?” Not every Latino is undocumented Jesus if you are living in Sunnyside please move and stop giving Sunnyside a bad reputation, not everyone is as narrow minded as you.

3rd generation Sunnysider

He may or may not be in the country against the law, but to say “undocumented immigrant” sounds like someone just misplaced their papers. Time to call a spade a spade, someone who is in the country against the law is an illegal alien. And by the way, I’m a third generation Sunnyside resident. My grandparents moved here in the 1940s.


Big deal 3rd. I’m 3rd generation my son is 4th and my grandson is 5th. You’re nothing special.


The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his 30s, about 5 feet tall and 125 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, dark-colored shoes, and a blue baseball cap.
