It dose not matter if he is legal and what nationality he is . He is an asshole. He needs to be caught arrested and put in jail. PERIOD

Top Hat.

These dirt bags are asking for another subway vigilante.
I see cops at 74st Station texting on their phones and just hanging out . NYPD needs to be more proactive.
Uphold the law , enforce the rules and incidents like these won’t happen.


That’s a nice clear photo of him. He’ll only serve a year in jail if that. If he’s not legally in the US, he should be tried, charged, and released from the country with a suspended sentence, if he reenters the US, he should be immediately detained and his sentence tripled. US immigration policy is way too permissive. We have people overstaying student visas for years. Easy way to fix that, is fine the school $1,000 a day if someone overstays their student visa.


He looks like an american white guy. i odnt know where al this legally talk is coming from.


Hey Anonymous! Try reading, “The suspect is described as a Hispanic…” doesn’t sound like what you’re calling “an american white guy”

His legal/illegal status is unknown. And for pc reasons the Jackson Heights Post would never include info this in any story. However you can search for yourself here:

Jackson Heights asshole

Bro you do know legal people and white people also commit commit crimes. Race doesn’t discriminate in being an asshole and you sir are probably an a$$hole.

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.
