Female suspect (NYPD)

A man who thought he was taking a woman back to her hotel room for a good time ended up getting his hand sliced and robbed, according to police.

A 43-year-old man met the female suspect near 82nd Street and Roosevelt Ave. The two decided to go back to the woman’s room in the Metro Motel, located at 73-00 Queens Blvd, according to police.

However, when the two reached the motel room another man, identified as Adam Arenas, 31, was there waiting, according to the NYPD.

The female suspect slashed the victim’s hand before taking his cell phone and an undetermined amount of money. The suspects then fled the motel, the NYPD said.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst General Hospital where he was treated and released.

Arenas is identified as a male, Hispanic, 5-foot-8 and 165 pounds.

Police have released a photo of Arenas from a 2015 arrest for petit larceny as well as a surveillance photo of the female suspect.

Police are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.

Note to the editor: I believe there is a typo in the second to last paragraph. In the sentence, “Police have released a photo of Arenas from a 2015 arrest for petit larceny as well as a surveillance photo of the female victim…” I presume the author intended to use the word “suspect” instead of “victim”.


The old Mets Motel!! Creepy! Lucky he didn’t get killed! Can’t believe that place still stands. Oofa!

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.
