NYPD: Man grabbed woman’s genitals on 84th Street while she was taking her dog for a walk


Aug. 30, 2016 By Hannah Wulkan

A 37-year-old female was assaulted in Jackson Heights on August 25 when she was approached from behind and groped over her clothes, according to police.

The victim was attacked around 5:45 am while walking her dog on 84th Street between 35th and 37th Avenues, though she did not get a good look at her attacker because it was still dark out.

He grabbed her genitals over her clothes from behind and then fled in to a white sedan when she screamed, according to police.

The incident is under investigation by the Queens Special Victims Unit.

The police have not yet released surveillance footage, but anyone with information on the incident is urged to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

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.
