A 47-year-old woman was punched in the head while waiting for a train at a Long Island City subway station Tuesday.
The victim was waiting for an E train inside the Queens Plaza subway station just before 6 p.m. when an unidentified man approached her and slugged her several times in the head without provocation, according to police.
The perpetrator then fled the scene on foot. He did not say anything to the woman during the assault, police said.
The victim, who suffered a broken nose and multiple bruises to her face, was transported by EMS in stable condition to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital.
Police released video footage of the suspect taken from inside the Queens Plaza subway station.
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 https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
All calls are strictly confidential.
Why can’t you just saying that asian got attack again, because of their skin color ? Everyone knows that NYC has stronger racism culture agains asians even compare with Texas or Alabama.
Maybe the mta can hire private security. Cops are not doing anything but filing police reports of crime and assaults and posting videos online of crime from the public days or weeks later.
pro crime politicians caused this, you people voted for this. not me.
And pro crime Republican politicians voted for that student murdered in Orlando, FL and that father shit in front of his child in a road rage incident in Houston, TX. You post the same inane garbage day and day out.
Google again and you will realize that the Democrat run cities in these Republican states are the high crime, high poverty, less educated areas that you claim about. Look up Little Rock, Jackson, Louisville… etc. That the argument here is NYC. Not anywhere else. Liberal politicians are to blame for crime here. Defund the police, bail reform, decriminalizing quality of life crimes are ALL liberal driven ideas.
It won’t matter if he gets caught. Bail reform will give him his freedom a few hours after arrest. Thank the same people who want the prisoners of Rikers to be released. You can’t even call it a revolving door system; even a revolving door has some resistance. This is just a straight open door policy.
“The consequences of Reagan’s social policy can be measured by the fact that today one-third of the homeless population are suffering from severe mental illness which puts a burden on police departments, hospitals and the penal system which lack the training and resources to deal with psychiatric emergencies (Honberg, 2015). Reagan’s unethical choice to end federal funding for mental health programs was driven by the desire to cut the budget. As a result, he did much more harm than good (PSY533, 2017).”
The hugs for thugs, the Mets Tix for crimes, the defund police…
All democratic doings.
Mr. Republican – Places like Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and the rest of the Republican strongholds have already defunded their police. Just look up what those states pay their police. So you’re fine with tax payers paying out hundreds of millions of dollars in judgements for the misconduct of a handful of cops. Let them pay their own legal claims like every other professional.
A man who hasn’t been President since 1988 is responsible? Lol. Oh Lord , but why no response to the wretched law by Democratic Presidents Bill Clinton or Obama? Or our Billion and 1/2 Thrive Mayor DiBlasio? Everything on the Republicans. You really need to get out more. Take the blinders off . 33 years later it’s Reagan’s fault. Wow.
Fan- A simple search and you’d be informed. All previous presidents from Reagan except Bill Clinton added to the deficit. President Bill Clinton
Total = $63 billion surplus, a 1% decrease
2001: $128 billion surplus
2000: $236 billion surplus
1999: $126 billion surplus
1998: $69 billion surplus
David. Who’s talking about deficits? What are you smoking ? I’m talking about how absurd the person who posted the message about Reagan was. The Democrats had 2 Presidents to undue what Reagan did if they really cared about the mental health situation. Maybe get yours checked too if you think my post was about deficits. Wow, deficits? Where was that in my response?
you’re delusional. funding isnt cut. it’s stolen. just ask deblasio’s wife. where’s the missing 1 billion dollars she took for her Thrive program for the mentally unstable homeless it was meant to help? shame on you for supporting the socialist democrats for taxpayer theft of funds. i hope the FBI finishes their investigation soon.
And what do you call progressive champion DiBlasio wasting 1 billion dollars of tax payer money on a mental health program ran by his wife that did absolutely nothing? Progress?
So NYS has a dem gov a dem legislature and nyc has a dem mayor a dem city council but this is all Reagan’s fault?? the man has been dead 17 years and has not been prez for over 30 years…this is the best excuse dems can come up with to cover their epic failure??
Gipper fan- It’s called an echo. Look it up. For every action a reaction. What the US revolutionary war has no impact on events today?
I would start my search for the suspect in Hotels being used as homeless shelters in a 10 mile radius from the subway station.
My comment was in response to ABoondy. Thank you.
what happened to all the karate and self defense schools? people need to learn to defend themselves when they mayor and cops dont care.
A lot closed during the lockdowns.
Should not be allowed out into the street. Sorry but we need to lock them up.
lock up the judges too for allowing the criminals out the next day to commit more crime.
We need more social workers on subway platforms. Transit Cops are not deterring crime. Maybe the private security in LIC can expand to local subway platforms.
Are actually ANTI social. They are not equipped to deal with emergency situations dealing with complete strangers.
More police. More walls. More bars. More guards.
More nightsticks for that matter.
Not a possible hate crime? I guess the victim was not a POC.
Since it was unprovoked that it was a hate crime and should be treated as such.
Look at all the quality of life crimes that go unpunished here from graffiti, fare beating, throwing garbage on the floor, illegal street vendors. Most of these crimes are committed by people of color. The city will not crack down on them because politicians like AOC and Jessica Rodriguez will start yelling that we are cracking down on people of color. Then they will start yelling mass incarceration.
The Knockout Game?
Any idea as to the race of the victim?
This isn’t even news anymore. We should just it expect this to happen from them.
These random beatings are crazy behavior. I have always felt unsafe at that subway stop, especially the desolate entrance on the north side of Queens Boulevard.
95% of the time there are homeless chattering to themselves at the top of the stairs at this entrance, too. Already a seedy-looking subway entrance, just makes it worse.
Now that the police have backed off policing because the democrat’s claims it targets mostly the same group of people, we will continue to see more and more of this. If i was a women in NYC today i would be very very worried about my personal safety. But the people get the government the deserve……vote republican next election and bring law and order back to our city for god sakes.
