Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a woman inside the M/R Northern Boulevard station last week.

The 29-year-old victim was standing on the mezzanine area on June 8, at around 5:50 p.m., when the man approached her, police said.

He threatened to cut the woman if she did not hand over her purse, according to police.

The suspect then grabbed the woman’s purse – that contained credit cards and some personal items – and fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

The women sustained a minor injury and refused medical attention, police said.

Police have released video footage of the man wanted for questioning.

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

dare to print the voice of the people

gee he looks like the guy who just beat up the guy in macys, no no wait i mean he looks like the guy who just knocked down the granny on the lower west side. but know that i look at him more closely he kinda looks like the guy who shot up the woodside houses the other day.


The poor man needs the money more than the so called victim does. He is just trying to live a more fair, just and equitable life. Have some compassion.


Don’t you get it, NYC is now pro crime. The cameras have been defunded. Also the light at the end of tunnel has been turned off…makes it easier to mug someone.


Definitely a case for the social workers!
You see what happens when you demonize the police and do away with cash bail? I’ll bet this guy has a record.
