Police are searching for five men who allegedly forced their way into a 60-year-old woman’s apartment, displayed a gun and robbed her.

The robbery took place on July 7 at around 4:50 pm within the confines of the 115th Precinct, which covers a portion of Jackson Heights, northern Corona and East Elmhurst. The police elected not to be more specific in terms of where the incident occurred.

The five suspects entered the victim’s apartment on July 7 at 4:50 pm, displayed a handgun and forced the woman to the floor, causing minor injuries to her arm, according to the NYPD.

The suspects then went into the woman’s bedroom, broke into a locked filing cabinet and took an undisclosed amount of money, before fleeing in a black SUV.

The suspects are described as Hispanic males, roughly 25-years-old. They are all roughly six feet tall, 150 pounds and have a dark complexion, police said.

Police are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.

A carry town is a polite town. If this little old lady was packing it would be a fair fight. The 2nd is to protect the 1st.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
