Woman beaten and robbed on 46th Street/Skillman Ave. Thursday

46th Street (btw. Skillman and 39th Avenue)

January 27, By Hannah Wulkan

A woman was beaten and robbed in the heart of Sunnyside yesterday.

The victim, a 54-year-old woman, reported that she was walking south on 46th Street between 39th Avenue and Skillman Avenue around 6:35 a.m. when an unknown man grabbed her from behind, according to police.

The suspect allegedly threw the woman to the ground and punched her in the face multiple times, before stealing her purse and fleeing east on Skillman Avenue.

He made off with her brown purse, which held around $200 in cash, her bank and credit cards, and her iPhone 6.

The woman went to Mount Sinai hospital in stable condition, with lacerations to her cheek, eye and lip and a black eye.

The suspect is described as a 5-foot-7 black man between 20 and 30 years old with a medium build.

Police have not made any arrests and the investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

And this is precisely why we moved out of Sunnyside and never looked back. It’s a great neighborhood and has the potential to really grow as a community and become a truly desirable area to live. But crimes like these, along with the break-ins, thefts, vandalism, and general disregard for the well being of the community led us to look elsewhere. I hate to say it, especially on this board, but moving out of Sunnyside was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. I do not miss it.

Ohhhhh – GROW UP everybody. Stop the bickering and cussing and learn to respect each other. This all started because a woman who was beaten and robbed and her belongings stolen on her way to work. One thing you should know is that Sunnysiders do not beat up and rob other Sunnysiders. They come from outside the area and are mostly black men. Plain and simple. It’s an education, immigration and also a cultural problem. Baring that, these thugs should be put in jail for 50 years no matter how big or small the crime, or, life without any parole if a life was taken. I guarantee people are going to be safe, and we would not be in need of more police to watch over us.

Smelly- you make a good point about the cost of living here, its not worth what is being charged for rentals or purchase but crime is everywhere. Also pay mac no mind hes an idiot who has to attack every one who has an opinion. If you dont like a comment, debate it, dont verbally attack someone. He also posts in the astoria and jackson heights posts. He definitely needs a job or something. Go to a gym, volunteer at a soup kitchen ,do something but sit around and play keyboard killer

These are the top tier neighborhoods in this part of queens. -L.i.c. , astoria, jackson heights, forest hills, are tops. Then 2nd tier neighborhoods , sunnyside ,woodside, east elmhurst, corona. Top tier places are so much better areas to live. People who have property over in sunnyside got lucky with the real estate boom. Otherwise ss sucks. Good for you people who got the property cheap years ago and will profit now, sell high ,take the money and run to a better neighborhood. Get out of smellyside

Your way of describing the perp is ridiculous and would nevr sift and narrow the universe of humans down to the perp by using a process of elimination. Why look at an Asian female and waste time when it’s totally not necessary when we know this information already in our initial description of the criminal. Are you for real?

True, Dorothy, we should do that. Just describe the individual as they are not on skin color. But also remove any mention of color on quotas for college/sports scholarships/government jobs/private jobs/housing/ welfare.etc. you see Dorothy it’s the African community that want to be labeled by color as an identification so we can’t deviate from the norm now can we?

Sunnyside Love Me Long Time

About three years ago I was BS-ing with this kid one night in a now closed Queens Boulevard pub. The kid was from Corona and liked to party in Sunnyside. He told me this story about two absolute thugs he knows from the neighborhood who saw all the hype in the papers about being the New Williamsburg and then rented an apartment with the specific purpose of ripping off the neighborhood. Remember the rash of break in a few years ago ? I’d bet dollars to donuts it was them or other losers who followed the same strategy. Announce a neighborhood is gentrifying and the criminals come to where the money is. You would thing the one-oh-eight would be doing more to stop it. Or JVB would be actively engaging with them to make sure its under control.

This is why nobody ever has the right to prevent law abiding citizens from defending themselves (i.e. – gun control). That means nobody ever should question who and why people want to carry guns. If everyone was walking around with a six-shooter on their hip, I guarantee that violent crime would be minimal (and the FBI has the data statistics to prove this). Criminals would have second thoughts of robbing old ladies if the possibility of them getting shot and killed was highly probable. We would all be holding doors, and saying please and thank you, as members of civilized society.

Facts first-
1. Stop being a dumb liberal.
2. If someone knows that person is carrying a gun, they’re less likely to approach. Plus, if they also know those in the houses on the street are loaded, then they would be less inclined to commit a crime because they’re outnumbered. Criminals are dumb but not that dumb. They look for easy targets and quick getaways. They won’t be going into a war zone.

Hello- You’re the one who is dumb and devoid of facts and statistics.
Fact 1- According to the FBI statistics all the states with the highest crime both petty and violent are all states with liberal gun laws like Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Arkansas and Florida.
According to your childish twisted logic all these places would be crime free. As for a gun protecting people and preventing a peson from perpetrating a crime ask the guy who tried to thawt the jewelry heist last week in San Antonio with his gun was murder by the perps. Real life is not vide games and the movies. Grow up before you get hurt fool.

People would also be shooting each other in the dark by mistake; children would be ‘playing’ with unsecured guns and killing their siblings by mistake; men threatening partners would include guns in their threats and sometimes use them. It is challenging for highly trained police officers, who renew training every year, to accurately shoot a criminal, without hitting fellow officers or civilians. Use of guns requires great judgment and skill. Your fantasy of everyone being armed is just that – the Wild West.

I’m part of the new trash. I moved here 10 years ago. Forget the fact that my grandparents emigrated to th e U.S. in the in the early 1900’s. Both my parents grew up in tenements on the lower east side and I grew up in Queens until I was 10.What makes u think u r better than others because u grew up here? Get over yourself! This is a diverse community and I love it! U all want to carry guns u will b shooting each other left and right. Queens is one of the most diverse communities in the 5 boroughs. Crime is everywhere, and unfortunately it’s come to a neighborhood that I moved to because I too also felt safe.The only time I c police is when they get their cup of coffee late afternoon at Starbucks. And the Anonymous,who posted about attacking old ladies 54 is not old. This is a horrible crime that could have happened to any one of us, this should be the communities concern and what can be done about preventing further crimes like this. The nation is protesting what Trump is doing to divide this country. You would think a small town like Sunnyside could get together and support each other to find a solution to help stop the crime, instead of fighting and calling each other names.

I was mugged a few years back leaving a bartending job I worked on Skillman Ave. Way before it was the place to be, like now. My attacker was white. He took my cash tips for that night and my cell phone (back when stealing phones was still a thing).
This is nothing to do with race. So before all you Trump supporters are forced out of Sunnyside by some bunch of smelly rich liberals, admit you secretly love that the attacker was described as African American. Because you just love it.

I hope this woman makes a full recovery. And I hope they nail the spineless bastard who attacked a woman in her 50s from behind.

As soon as we can get all men out of Sunnyside, just imagine the crime free utopia we could have…

It was known as the Brogue back then, now the Globe.

How gullible is this clown with his anti Van Bramer posting name? Of course there was crime in Sunnyside 50 years ago. My sister was mugged coming home from cozy bros. now McGuiness in the late 60’s when I was home on leave. We also weren’t afraid to question someone’s reason for being in the neighborhood. Granted this particular offense occurred at 6:00AM. A grown man couldn’t be as gullible as this guy to believe Sunnyside was a crime free autopia. That is pretty scary no wonder this country is in the shape it is.

I would walk every morning to work around that time 5:30-6 am same block and every day. Those blocks between Skillman and 39 Ave are super dark. I would walk in the middle of the street to not startle the neighbors walking their pets or going to work. I’ve said it once and I’ve said it over and over again. There is not enough police presence in sunnyside period.

Agree. Living in this neighborhood 44 years and never had this problem. Thanks to JVB and Mayor idiot, hotels on Queens Blvd. turning into homeless shelters, we now have issues with undesirables in the area. JVB will march across the 59th street bridge to Trump Tower in protest against Trump to protect the rights of gays and lesbians, but tells us we should not protest in front of these hotels. It is not politically correct or proper to not accept people in the neighborhood who are in need of housing. Really JVB. Do yourself a favor, do not March with Mayor Idiot in the all inclusive parade this year. He is not welcomed. And JVB needs to find a new job.

JVB never once told people not to protest the welfare hotels. In fact he was at odds with the mayor over the mayors policy and it was a very public dispute and in all the papers and on the TV News. I’ve been in Sunnyside for well over 70 years of my life and Sunnyside was never immune to the occasional crime. That’s why this story made the news it’s not the norm. Either you’re a liar or just horribly informed.

The Quality Inn, located at 53-05 Queens Boulevard, is being used as a temporary homeless shelter. In the past two months, families have arrived without the DHS informing elected officials, Community Board 2 or the public at large.

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer said he was never formally notified of the administration’s decision to move homeless families into the hotel. It was only when he heard from a constituent that he uncovered that it was being used as a temporary shelter for the homeless.

“The administration’s handling of this has been outrageous and has been botched from the start,” Van Bramer said. “I have been livid with the administration in the way the have tried to sneak this in. It is not the way the these things should be done.”

He said the de Blasio administration didn’t tell anyone that the temporary shelter was in operation. He said that de Blasio is ultimately responsible for this.

“Whether he is making the call or not, the buck stops with the mayor and that is what the big job means,” Van Bramer said.

Van Bramer said he has no plans to protest outside the Quality Inn. “There are young mothers and children who are going through tough times. We do have to show empathy.”

Well then prepare for more, Jimbo!

Jimmy didn’t know cause nobody told him! That’s about as good as Hillary saying she didn’t know anything about her emails.
This guy expects everyone to do his job for him but he has no problem taking a salary increase right.
He’s the same twit that has a meeting on how to spend the city’s millions he’s supposedly in charge of but he didn’t get the memo on another homeless shelter.
But he’s the jerkoff having rally’s to shut down clubs and try to condem someone’s business but he won’t rally on a homeless shelter adding crime and dirtbags to the parks and streets at night.
Maybe he should let them stay at his house for a couple months than if it’s no big deal.
Next year people don’t elect this idiot in again !!!!!!!!!
Please please please please.
He blames Deblasio but it’s his territory and his responsibility and he’s getting paid over $160,000 for a job he obviously cannot do.
He’s weak and in capable and makes excuses for what he’s getting paid to do.
He’s the reason this neighborhood has the problems it has.

We need a totalitarian state. This will create law and order. Law and order is all that matters. There should be police with assault rifles on every block. No more than 2 or three people can congregate together, otherwise you will be arrested. If you are of color, and are north of Qns Blvd, you will be arrested. You never know who will be aiding the police, so you should keep your mouth shut – or you will be arrested. Everyone will now have to walk the same, and not make any sudden movements. No public displays of affection, especially if you are LGBT. You will provide your documentation whenever asked, and that could be at any time. We need to know who you are, where you live, who you family is, who your friends are, and what your activities are. We will investigate any lies, and you will be arrested. You might even disappear upstate or within the bowels of rikers.

Law and order. That’s all that counts or matters. USSR HERE WE COME!!!!

And most of america’s conservative right forgot the cold war, and what authoritarian/ totalitarian rule is. You included. You have no idea what you are sacrificing for ideology. Pretty soon we will be living in a state like russia, if trump has anything to do with it, and your civil liberties and what you thought he was fighting for is thrown right out the window because either trump or his 1% make more money.

Putin realized money is everything. So has the leader of China, India, Korea, Japan, etc. They will prostitute themselves and suck trumps ass, because this is what america has done. Sold out.

America is a whore house. Plain and simple. They will f*ck anything that moves for money. Pure definition of prostitution.

The Police today don’t want to have to walk around and actually work. They like sitting in the Squad Car and reading FaceBook stories about Trump.
Back in the ’60s we had “Beat Cops”, they knew everybody and everybody knew them. There was a Sargent on Patrol that checked the local Beat Cops, they had no radios, but “Call Boxes” at various locations. They knew the skells and the good guys, it always seemed “Safe”. There were factories, and the “Fleet Post Office” on Northern Blvd. Lots of jobs, many people walked to work, to American Chicle and Breyers Ice Cream, or Liberty Brass Turning on Queens Boulevard. People knew the Cops and the business owners knew everybody in the neighborhood. There was a better quality of life due to that kind of familiarity. Today it’s just not the same.

Thank you for reporting this promptly and not a month later as you often do.

I feel terrible for this woman. Let’s stick together for our community and please call the police if you see the guy.

keep running

poor lady hope she recovers from the attack. and if there is a bright note in all of this is that the dog & duck and the European deli have cameras that will capture his image as he is cowardly running away, east on Skilman. The NYPD should publish his image not only on the web but on every lamppost in the neighborhood too

More the Tony ‘The Wretch’. Nothing reported in the story to suggest the perp was an undocumented migrant.

Exactly ! That’s why these intolerant racist criminals need to be apprehended, prosecuted and if here illegally – deported. I’d not here illegally – thrown in jail.

Oh geez! Yeah slam and ridicule the victim, praise and protect the criminal.
Nothing could be more backwards and insane.
