Police are looking for a man who mugged a straphanger on board a 7 train in Sunnyside Monday.

The suspect approached a 55-year-old woman and ripped two gold chains off from around her neck as the train was pulling into the 46th Street Bliss station at around 12:15 p.m., according to police.

The man then exited the train with the gold chains once it stopped at the station, police said. It is unclear how much the necklaces are worth.

There were no injuries reported.

Police released a video and images of the man wanted for questioning.

The suspect, who is bald and has a beard, can be seen in the video wearing a gray-colored top and blue shorts. He was also carrying a black-colored backpack.

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 Crime Stoppers website at

Not much of a man. Big fat guy robs 55 year old woman. In fact, not much of a human being.

Too much Bling-Bling got her a Major Ding

If the Victim was Foolish enough to Flash and Show off her Jewelry, then she attracted the wrong attention.
In what world is she living, knowing that Crime is up all around NYC, especially in the Subways ?

Nice Job being Foolish enough to Blame the Victim, which will attract the wrong attention.
Can’t Fix Idiots.

The new Sunnyside is great. The glue factory doesn’t spew ash or odors everyday. The sewers were upgraded. Restaurants line Skillman in numbers never seen before. Streets are illuminated. Mac is updating his family summer home in South Hampton and playing with his new grandson, Mac obviously has no time to post with nay sayers and doomsday cryers. And I’m certain a chain snatching on a subway system that carry’s millions of people daily are not going to change his view. If you’re so frightened maybe you should go back to Ohio. You can find Mac donating time at the VFW post if you’re so concerned. You obviously have the time.

She said we should take the bus and leave

He sounds like another charmer! Note that this happened in broad daylight. According to MAYOR ADAMS, it is just in our imaginations – that’s what the progressives say also.

“ BuT wHaT aBoUt CrImE oVeR tHeRe” ,this isn’t Oklahoma, let them deal with their crime, we , unfortunately, have to deal with ours. It’s crazy,but true, we may have elected a worse mayor then DeBlasio.


I’m sure after getting mugged or pushed on to the train tracks a person can find solace in the fact that “at least it’s not Oklahoma.”

Frank – It was a chain snatching. Not every crime is murder and mayhem. You must write for the NY Post.

If you let your jewelery be visible in public, you are inviting a robbery. That’s not victim blaming. It’s common sense. Keep your shiny baubles hidden when you go out. It doesn’t matter how much or how little they’re worth.
