March 13, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a suspect who dragged a man down a staircase outside an Elmhurst dwelling unit on Sunday and stole the victim’s wallet.

The suspect approached the 53-year-old victim who was standing on the front steps from behind and pulled him down the staircase on March 8 at around 2 a.m. The thief stole the man’s wallet in the process– in an attack that took place in the vicinity of 76th Street and 43rd Avenue.

The victim’s head struck the pavement and he lost consciousness, according to police.

The alleged perpetrator fled the scene on foot southbound on 76th Street. The wallet contained $500 in cash and two credit cards.

EMS took the victim to hospital in critical but stable condition.

Police have released video footage of the attack and the man wanted for questioning.

The suspect was last seen wearing a light-colored cap, a dark-colored jacket, dark-colored pants, and dark-colored sneakers, according to police.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

I like the way they described his wardrobe but not height, weight or anything else that might help the police get this POS off the streets.


Has anyone heard or seen Jessica Ramos ? , she has literally disappeared. She promised so many beautiful things during her campaign.

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.
