Police are searching for a man who allegedly threatened a woman on a Manhattan-bound E train in Jackson Heights last week.

According to the report, the suspect sat next to the 33-year-old victim around 8:40 a.m. on October 14 on an E train near Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue and threatened to slap her.

When she moved to another location on the train, the man approached and lifted his shirt, showing the handle of a firearm.

The victim exited the train while the suspect remained on the train, and there were no injuries reported.

The suspect was described as a 6 foot tall man in his 30s, and was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, black sneakers, a green jacket and black jeans.

The police have released a photograph of the suspect, and anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

I wish there will be closed circuit television surveillance cameras in every single subway car, old and new, in order to make the entire subway system safer. If only the MTA can come up with the money to retrofit these.
