Four women who live in Queensbridge Houses are wanted for a bizarre subway robbery where they allegedly attacked two young women on an Astoria-bound N train earlier this month while dressed in neon green bodysuits.

The NYPD is looking to locate Emily Soto, 34, Mairam Cisse Issouf, 26, Ciante Alston, 26, and Dariana Peguero, 26, according to Chief of Detectives James Essig, who said Friday that they all have prior arrests.

The four suspects were allegedly part of a group of nine women in bodysuits who got into an argument with two 19-year-olds on the N train platform at the Times Square station at around 1:50 a.m., Oct. 2.

Essig said the incident was sparked by an apparent bump on the platform, which led to a dispute on an Astoria-bound N train. Some of the women dressed in the green body suits then punched the 19-year-olds before stealing their phones and wallets.

Video was captured of the incident.

The victims were not seriously injured, according to police.

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).

I grew up in nearby Ravenswood in the 1960s-early 1970s and Queensbridge hasn’t changed. Any crime that was committed, that’s where the lowlifes came from.

Let’s ask Tiffany Caban what the two 19 year olds should have said and done to de-escalate the situation.
