Police are searching for a man who allegedly tried to rape a woman in Corona on April 28.

The suspect approached a 28-year-old woman near Junction Boulevard and 52nd Avenue around 10:35 p.m. and attempted to stick his hands down the victim’s pants, police said. He was unsuccessful and then grabbed her groin over her clothing before taking off on foot.

The woman was transported to an area hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries.

Police describe the suspect as Hispanic, between 30 and 40 years old, and about 5 feet 4 inches tall. He had a goatee and was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, a purple and yellow baseball cap and carrying a backpack, police said.

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

Captain obvious- The perps would just find another violent method to inflict upon their victims. Rape is an act of violence. Isn’t that obvious?


I’m sure it wasn’t the first time this guy did this & it won’t be the last .
These attackers should be punished not be given probation or sent to rehabilitation

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
