A man is wanted in connection to a brutal assault of a 70-year-old man in Corona last month.

The assailant allegedly approached the 70-year-old victim on May 12 around 11:20 a.m. in front of a sportswear store, located at 103-12 39 Avenue, and punched him in the mouth with a closed fist, throwing him to the ground without saying a word.

The attacker kicked the victim, while he was on the ground, and then fled on foot west on 39 Avenue, police say.

The victim refused medical attention at the scene.

Police described the attacker as male, Hispanic, 25-35 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, with brown eyes, black hair, a medium build, and a goatee. He has tattoos on his right hand and was last seen wearing all black clothing.

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).

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.
