Police Looking for Suspects Wanted for Knife-Point Robberies at Queens Subway Stations

June 28, 2018 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for two suspects wanted in connection to two knife-point robberies that took place at subway stations this month.

The first incident occurred on Monday, June 18, when the suspects, a male and a female, approached a 29-year-old man at the Court Square “G” subway station at 9:30 p.m. and asked for a MetroCard swipe before displaying a knife.

The pair then took $140 dollars from the victim’s pockets and fled. The victim was not injured, police said.

Then on Friday, June 22, at about 8:40 p.m., the suspects approached a 30-year-old man on the staircase at the Broadway ‘7’ subway station in Jackson Heights, police said. They then blocked him from leaving and displayed a knife.

The pair took his wallet containing $2, credit cards and ID cards, police said.

There were no injuries.

Both suspects are described as black. The man was wearing a white T-Shirt and gray sweatpants.

The female suspect is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall, and was last seen wearing a white tank top. She was holding a black bag.

Anyone with information in regards 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).

Check the projects. Beware of politicians looking to expand NYCHA. This is a matter of the safety of friends family and neighbors. No more low income housing.
