The police are looking for three suspects who robbed a man at knife point at the Steinway Street/ 34th Avenue subway station on Monday.

The suspects allegedly approached a 39-year-old straphanger on the mezzanine level at the station at around 10:10 a.m. before pushing him against a wall and punching him in the mouth. They then displayed a knife and took his wallet containing credit cards and about $40.

The victim sustained bruising and swelling to his face but did not seek medical attention at the scene.

The three men are described by police as being between 18 and 20 years of age with a dark skin complexion. Police released video footage and photos of the suspects fleeing the station.

Anyone with information in regard 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).

Ever since they removed the token booth that entrance/exit is very sketchy. Essentially a free pass for farebeaters and flophouse for the homeless.


Nothing new here. The police are looking to catch them so the D.A. with dark complexion can reduce “armed robbery” charges to “littering” and a judge with light complexion set these animals free because these creatures’ mamas say how good these kids are and everybody in the community love these kids.
P.S.: Subways should be knife free zones. Knife ownership should be strictly regulated. Anybody who applies for knife ownership permit should have mandatory 72 hours training in a professional kitchen, provide 3 references, social media usernames, pass an psychological exam.
