Suspect Bites and Punches 16-Year-Old Girl on Subway Platform in LIC

The NYPD is looking to track down the suspect pictured who allegedly punched a female teenager in the face and pulled her hair (NYPD)

Sept. 1, 2022 By Christian Murray

A 16-year-old girl was punched in the face and had her hand bitten while standing on a subway platform in Long Island City Monday during morning rush hour.

The teen was on the 39th Ave. N/W platform at around 8:35 a.m. when an individual approached her and attempted to take her cellphone.

The suspect became enraged when the robbery attempt failed and punched the teenager in the mouth, pulled her hair and bit her. The suspect then fled.

The victim did not require hospitalization although she did sustain a large laceration to her hand from the bite.

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).

Forget the mental evaluation — they’ll just say she needed a Snickers because she wasn’t herself when she’s hungry.

I have cracked the case. The suspect is Pat, portrayed by Julia Sweeney, on Saturday Night Live.

All the systemic racism and inequities made her think the phone was a loaf of bread. Now if we can just spend trillions from the Federal treasury on climate change she can have justice or something.


I never take out my phone on the subway unless its to record a crime and call 911. People are always sending tweets about delays and taking pics of homeless people. It needs to stop.


How is putting homeless shelters and low income apartments next to middle class and luxury housing working out for us?

Not In My Backyard!

Exactly! The homeless are a problem, so we shouldn’t build shelters or do anything to address it. This is what Trump lovers actually believe ?


Its such nonsense. How are people suppose to sign up when all she does is tweet about it for likes. I mean many people that do not have those free services yet are old and do not have internet access. She needs to knock on doors and meet with the people a couple of days before like they do for votes. Tired of these folks setting up tables and taking up precious dog walking space. Hardly anyone comes out fearing its another nypd recruitment table. Leave us alone. You know we can read. Post a sign!

wake up people

and this will continue to happen and even get worse it y’all keep voting for socialist democrats

Gullible Republicans believe in myths, fairytales, invisible gods and conspiracy theories

The highest crime states, counties and yes Republican controlled cities all have higher crime rates than NYC. Just ask South Carolina, Mississippi, Tulsa and Jacksonville.


Oh please. The governor and mayor of this city are both considered Moderate Democrats and they are not doing anything about crime and the decline of quality of life. They both are all talk and no action always blaming others and run for photo ops whenever the press is there. Always sending mixed messages to try and please the public and raise their approval ratings.

The Big Apple Circus

Another misunderstood genius. When will we get a universal income so we can all walk around smoking weed biting each other? It’s so unfair that I have to work.
