July 12, Staff Report
A 64-year-old woman was struck in the head by a wrench that was thrown during an argument between two men at the Roosevelt Ave-Jackson Heights subway station, according to police.
The victim was sitting on the platform at the station at 4:25 p.m. on Monday, July 1, when two men became involved in a physical altercation. During the fight, one man threw a wrench at the other and missed—instead hitting the woman on the forehead.
The woman was taken to a local hospital in a stable condition, but she was observed to have suffered lacerations to the head.
The man suspected of throwing the wrench was later caught on CCTV buying a bottle of water at a nearby restaurant. He was observed to be short-haired and bearded, wearing a blue baseball cap, white shirt and dark pants.
Anyone with information in regards to the identity of the males 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 or www.nypdcrimestoppers.com on Twitter @NYPDTips.
Not one comment feeling bad for the woman who got hurt. I hope she’s okay, but things like this put fear in people for a very long time and they avoid the places where they got hurt. My heart goes out to her.
they could have gave a better description other than blue cap and white shirt .

Imagine this being
your most nuanced understanding
of criminal justice reform
This area needs gentrification
“He was observed to be short-haired and bearded, wearing a blue baseball cap, white shirt and dark pants.” Lets try to guess what’s missing from this description?
He appears to have dark skin color.
But I could be wrong.
Survey says :
who is a black man ?
Now I’ve seen everything!
That is incorrect!
