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).
