Police Looking for Pair Who Stole 69-Year-Old Woman’s Purse at Woodside Station

Suspects (NYPD)

Oct. 6, 2021 By Allie Griffin

A pair of thieves cut off a 69-year-old woman’s purse from her arm as she stood on a Woodside subway platform.

The duo demanded the older woman surrender her purse at the 69th Street-Fisk Avenue 7 train station on Sept. 24 at about 9 p.m.

When she refused, the pair pulled out a sharp object and cut the purse straps off her arm — and slashed her arm in the process, police said.

The suspects ran off with the woman’s bag and the victim was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.

Police described the male suspect as dark-skinned, approximately 30-years-old and 5 feet 6 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt, black pants, and a dark-colored baseball cap. The female suspect was last seen wearing a light blue Adidas sweatshirt and light-colored jeans.

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

I’m not 100% sure, but I think I saw this man mindlessly hanging around the 46th street station. He just stood there while the train left the station.. I thought it was suspicious. This was on 10/9 around 11-12:30pm (closer to 12-12:30ish pm)- the 7 train headed manhattan bound. Please review the tapes.


Most of us are just becoming numb to all these weekly wanted by the police videos. The only time people are shocked is when its a different puzzle piece than the one that fits.


we just have to take justice into our own hands. simple as that. protect and defend yourself by any means.

Liberals did this

Are liberals going to blame their own liberal media for only spotlighting dark skinned criminals, or maybe this is a reality. You can blame COVID, the economy, this made up notion of “systemic racism” but people know what is right and wrong, if not they are subhuman. Liberals make up all these excuses for these people’s behavior (looting Louis Viton because they were hungry has to be the best one) and never blame the individual, themselves. That is why they push their programs and ideas to pander for votes, and who is hurt in the end, the same people they are “fighting for.” This poor old lady is probably now traumatized. Hypocrisy at its best.

oh what a mess democrats have spun

with crime like this everywhere in the US, biden decides to get the dept of justice to go after rowdy moms at school board meetings. sigh, what happened to the democratic party? i will be voting for anyone who is not a democrat until they move back to the center. Yeah, that means i would even vote for the orange man, the current president is completely lost and a complete failure.

Quite the couple. Red Sox fan to boot.

Hope the victim has recovered and is healing well…almost two weeks later.

Yeah. I've noticed.

The red Sox fans decide to hate on Yankees players and fans and say we’re obnoxious but we don’t go around looting no matter what. The Red Sox wins, they loot. They lose, they still loot.

They look like the same rif rafs that staying at The Delight Stay formely known as Quality Inn at Queens Blvd & 53 St aka Shelter

Nom de plum

BTW What is the punishment for robbery? Do they just get a slap on the wrist or a short time in a cell? Why isn’t more being done about people ripping and running on the streets of Queens and Brooklyn?

Surprise, surprise.

Those pesky Amish are at it again!!!

Robbing and shooting like it’s 1699!!!


Thank you Deblasio and Vanbranner. And the so called Family hotel shelter on 39th street has quietly become an all men’s shelter. It’s just getting worse.

Lucky number 7 train

we should expect more of this as they convert more hotels into permanent housing and build more low income housing, closing rikers, bail reform. great job progressives the elderly of Queens thanks you.


Western queens voters do not care. Most are all for voting for politicians that want to close Rikers bail reform and releasing non violent criminals.
