Police have arrested a man wanted in connection with a sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl while she was asleep on the 7 train in Corona on Sunday, according to police.

Kenneth Kou, 28, was taken into custody Wednesday around 6:30 p.m. at his place of employment in Nassau County and later arrested, police say.

Kou was charged with sex abuse, forcible touching, and acting in a manner injurious to a child, according to police.

Kou, who lives on Long Island in the vicinity of Evans Avenue and Wentworth Avenue, allegedly pressed his body against the victim while she was sleeping on a Queens-bound 7 train as it was approaching the Junction Boulevard station at around 3:45 p.m. on May 26, police said.

Police said the detective squad received a tip that led to Kou’s arrest.

The investigation remains ongoing.

By the time he goes to trial we will may have a DA that will drop the charges and coddle him.

A whole train car full of people watch this man dry hump a little sleeping girl for 30 minutes no one does a damn thing. Nice city we live in.

Why did you capitalize "open borders?"

Is that the name of a new book store or are you just too stupid to understand what capitalization is?


Dear “Why did you capitalize “open borders?””:

When questioning a quote the question mark (?) should be placed outside of the actual quote (“…”), not inside. Correct grammar is …”open borders”? NOT …”open borders?”. *Note the placement of the question mark. To answer your next question; “NOT” isn’t the “name of a new book store” either.

“Open Borders” is one translation of “Pueblo sin Fronteras’s”; an organization that demands America accept and welcome the millions of illegal aliens. Therefore capitalization is correct. Capitalization can also be used as a licensed means for emphasis.

Your simple “just too stupid” remark is itself a stupid response to an opinion that you apparently disagree with. Your ad hominem (name calling) just comes off as somewhat GEDish. There is no real point to it.

Now, would you care to discuss my other use of capitalization “Amnesty for All”? I can also explain that to you.

I agree, the "open boarders" poster seems really dumb

Thanks for agreeing with me. To your whataboutism: you’ve got a great point: other people have done things.


These hundreds of “thumbs down” clicks are brought to you by the people for Open Borders and Amnesty for All.

You really think it's spelled "boarders"

Not the brightest crayon in the box I’m guessing?

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.
