Man Assaulted on E-Train Platform in Jackson Heights: NYPD

Suspect (NYPD)

Dec. 20, 2019 By Kristen Torres

Police are looking for man who punched a subway rider on the train platform in Jackson Heights earlier this month.

Police said the 33-year-old victim was riding on a northbound E train when he got involved in an argument with the suspect on Dec. 8 around 3:30 p.m.

The victim exited the train at the Roosevelt Avenue/Jackson Heights subway station and the suspect followed, punching the victim twice in the face before fleeing back onto the train.

The victim was not seriously injured and refused medical attention at the scene, according to police.

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).

And AOC who has no clue about reality and just criticizes everything and everybody, is saying that police officers aren’t needed on the subways and platforms? Is that what she thinks while she’s riding in her chauffered car, while she gets to ride in bus lanes and park where taxpayers are not allowed to park unless they want to pay the ransom known as muni meters?

Why does the Radical Right want everything to be PC?

I’m sorry she hurt your feelings.

Comparing parking meters to a kidnapper’s ransom makes you seem like a very stable genius though.

What’s the big deal. This man was simply exercising his first amendment right to freedom of speech.

Ok...

I agree, Trump lovers use racist dog whistles and fear-mongering about “muh immigrants.”

That’s not illegal. Thanks for pointing that out?

Is this the new norm ?
Assaults & sexual attacks on the trains & platform ?
How could the mayor say crime is going down ?
Why won’t Jessica Ramos and A.O.C do something about the increased in crime ?

And Jessica Ramos and AOC still believe having those extra 500 officers is not a good idea. Do either of them actually know what goes on in Jackson Heights ? ? . They sure promised a lot before they got voted .

The suspect was a republican

No mention of him being an immigrant at all. Strange thing to mention. Imagine being so gullible!
