Man Beaten and Robbed in North Corona: NYPD

Sept. 18, 2019. By Shane O’Brien 

Police are looking for a suspect who assaulted a man and stole $300 from him outside a North Corona apartment building last month.

The robbery took place at about 2 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29 outside 108-23 39th Ave., according to the NYPD.

The victim, a 39-year-old man, was walking down the residential street when the unidentified suspect approached him from behind and placed him in a choke hold. The victim fell to the ground, while the suspect proceeded to punch the man several times before stealing his wallet which contained about $300 cash.

The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction, while the victim later refused medical attention.

Police describe the suspect as tall and black, with a medium build. He was last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @ NYPDTips.

Did you spill your coffee tripping over one of the countless homeless people laying around the city? Or running from some gang banger shooting at a rival at 2:00 in the afternoon? Or from one of the ATV gangs rampaging thru red lights and on sidewalks? If not one of those, or something similar to those, then you probably shouldn’t blame De Blasio for spilling your coffee.
