Police are looking for a man suspected of touching a woman’s buttocks while on board a subway train in Jackson Heights last month.

According to the NYPD, the man touched the woman’s buttocks while on a Queens bound F train as it approached the Roosevelt Avenue-Jackson Heights station at 4:25 p.m. on Friday, July 12.

When the woman confronted the man, he denied touching her and exited the train at Roosevelt Avenue-Jackson Heights. He then boarded a Q49 bus and left the station.

Police describe the suspect as a bald, black man in his 40’s, 5’6″ to 5’8 tall. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored t-shirt, black pants and a blue and grey backpack.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident 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 WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

The real truth hurts

People that ride public transportation should always use deodorant during hot weather

It is an ALLEGATION. Where is the proof and why is it reported here as fact? She says he did it. He says he didn’t. No proof, no transgression. Anybody can allege anything even if it isn’t true. If you’re a man reading this, what is to stop a woman standing next to you on the subway from alleging the same thing? A lot of allegations aren’t true. Just ask (fabulously young-will serve for decades) Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

ANOTHER Trump Lover excusing sex crimes?!

Well, Trump was friends w/Epstein and endorsed Roy Moore, so I guess this isn’t surprising.


because women just love sayinga man grabbed her ass, going to the police about it, filing a report, confirming a picture the police got form a security camera, just for sh*ts and giggles.

Wait, Bill Clinton said "grab em by the pu$$$y" ?

I don’t think your 2-year-old WHATABOUT DEMOCRATS argument is relevant here. Thanks for comparing Trump to other sex criminals though.


Was it particularly crowded? All subway and bus riders need to take that into consideration.

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

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

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.
