Man Punched and Kicked in Face on 7-Train Platform in Jackson Heights

Jan. 2, 2020 By Kristen Torres

A 54-year-old man was assaulted at a subway station in Jackson Heights last week, according to police.

Police said the man was inside of the Roosevelt Avenue-Jackson Heights subway station on the Flushing-bound 7 train platform around 8 p.m. on Dec. 28 when an individual approached the victim and proceeded to punch and kick him in the face.

The suspect then fled the station on a Flushing bound 7 train. The victim suffered lacerations and bleeding to the face and was transported by EMS to NYC Health and Hospitals/Elmhurst, according to police.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this individual is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Where are the police that are supposed to be in subway cars and on platforms? When they get this latest sewer slime, they’ll say he’s mentally ill and will be hospitalized paid for by the taxpayers he’s hurt. Will somebody PLEASE audit Mayor DeButthead’s wife’s organization that has gotten millions of dollars to help the mentally ill and find out where this money is going, including her under-earned salary?

He’s referring to the huge amount of statistical data that shows, without a doubt, the significant drop in crime. You may not like DeBlasio but facts are facts. An occasional incident like this doesn’t change anything.

Violent crime is down significantly from where it was in the past. There are more than 6 million people in NYC and incidents like this will never go away. There is no “rise in crime” on our streets or in the subway but there are many who want to scare you by insisting that you’re in constant danger of being attacked. Most of us go about our day without anything ever happening and have little reason to worry.

And the people still want to shut down Rikers Island, Jessica Ramos wants to give the criminals more rights , and protest those extra 500 officers being hired for the trains and platforms.

Google CBS local news 77.000 New Yorkers left the city! The people have had enough. Moving to lower tax, safer states.

Jose – Yes they left lower tax states like Wyoming Louisiana West Virginia Alaska and Mississippi as well and in greater percentage in proportion to those states populations. Most are leaving upstate New York to escape harsh winters according to various news and focus group surveys. New York has always been a state where people enjoy higher than average US salaries and pensions, that’s why there are developments through out North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida called little New York little New Jersey little Connecticut and little Massachusetts because of the number of retirees from those states. Blue states build individual wealth and with the higher home values in those states people make a killing and move to Republican controlled Red states and take advantage of Republican policies that keep the locals poor. It’s just how it is. If it’s safety you’re looking for it won’t be found in red states according to FBI statistics those are the highest crime states in the nation.

Jose – You’re the one posting propaganda and you keep getting caught at it. Macs post is all verifiable just do some simple google searches. According to Forbes Magazine and Crains Business both Republican contributors, if you want to make real money in the US move the West coast or the North East, even with the higher cost of living you will walk away with much more hard earned cash than anywhere else in the country after a lifetime of work. Why do you think people target places like NYC Boston San Francisco Seattle and LA?

According to US News and World Report NY state lost about 45,000 people. How do you come out to 77,000 for NYC? Are you a graduate of Trump University with a degree in Fox News math?

It would be explained pretty easily if 32K people left the city for other parts of the state and 45K people left the city for a different state. The demographic movement is certainly more complex than that, but from a mathematical perspective, it’s just a difference between net movement out of the city being higher than net movement out of the state.

A number of other news sources offer estimates as high as the loss to NYC of 88K people, but there would be nothing inherently incompatible with US News and World Report reporting a loss of 45K in the state and CBS Local reporting a loss of 77K in the state.

Sorry, that last sentence should read “…a loss of 45K in the state and CBS local reporting a loss of 77K in the ”
