Police are searching for a man who posed as a cop and demanded that his victim “donate” money to the 114 Precinct.

Police say that the suspect approached the victim’s house near 34th Street and Broadway at around 7 p.m. on Sept. 13.

The suspect was wearing a police badge around his neck, and he told the victim, a 30-year-old man, that he was a police officer. He demanded that the victim hand over a donation for the precinct, or else he’d “better leave Queens,” police said.

The victim gave him money and the suspect walked off on foot, police say. A police spokesperson said that he was not sure how much money the suspect had taken.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic with a light complexion. He is described as being about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 280 pounds, with short black hair, a long black beard and a heavy build. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, black jeans and tan shoes. 

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).

The perp is probably a regular at Home of Astoria where he sucks down sugary, overpriced drinks and gags on hookah—to maintain his bloated figure.
