The police are looking for two suspects who stole a woman’s unattended purse inside Dunkin’ Donuts on 48th Street last month.

The police released photos yesterday of the suspects who allegedly grabbed the victim’s purse from her chair while she had stepped outside the 35-00 48th Street establishment at around 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 18.

The two suspects took the purse that contained $120 in cash and a debit card, police said.

The suspects are both female and Hispanic.

The first suspect was seen wearing glasses and was last seen wearing a colored jacket. The second suspect was last seen wearing a black and white hooded sweater, black pants and white sneakers, according to the NYPD.

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).

Can’t fix stupid

Ok. It’s terrible that she got robbed but why would she live her bag unattended????


Yea..This is Astoria where you can no longer leave your stuff attended to perhaps get a napkin or a pack of sugar at a coffee shop.


There was a time (not too many yrs ago) when people left their doors unlocked during the day and parents let their children out to play in Astoria. It was also safe to leave your windows and garage doors open mostly becomes neighbors kept on eye on your home and children when they played outside. That is no longer the case.
