Man Attacked, Robbed of Cell Phone and Wallet in Jackson Heights: NYPD

(NYPD and Google Maps)

June 22 2020, By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a suspect who attacked a man and stole his cell phone and wallet in Jackson Heights earlier this month.

The 54-year-old victim was walking in front of 35-45 90th St. on June 11 at around 3:30 a.m. when the suspect walked past him, turned around, and pushed him from behind.

The man, who was caught completely unaware, fell forward and tried to run away from his attacker.

The assailant chased after him but the man lost his balance, stumbled into a parked car, and then fell to the ground.

The thief then punched the victim in the head and body, according to police.

He then stole the man’s cellphone and wallet which contained $40 cash, police said.

The victim suffered cuts to his face and elbow and was transported to a local hospital to be treated, police said.

Police have released video footage of the incident and a photograph of the man wanted for questioning.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.

These past couple of weeks there has been murders, assaults, groping, and robberies. Plenty of gang graffiti on the walls and everyone is ok with that. What bothers people in Jackson Heights is the lady selling flowers and tamales. So backwards are some people.
