Police are searching for one of two suspects who allegedly robbed a 20-year-old man at knifepoint in Long Island City in December.
The two thieves approached the victim with a knife at around 12:28 p.m. on Dec. 12 in front of a 31-06 35th Ave., police say.
They then removed the victim’s wallet when he fell trying to escape. The wallet contained $300 and an identification card.
One of the suspects, Christian Jones, 20, from the Bronx, has been arrested and charged with one count of robbery in relation to the incident.
The other suspect has yet to be apprehended. Police have identified the second suspect as 19-year-old Tyrese Knight, described as male, black, 5 feet 6 inches, and 200 pounds.
Anyone with information in regards to Knight’s whereabouts is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Robbed at knifepoint. Thank god diblasio has made us all safer by no stop and frisk. Do you think these two used metro cards to come to LIC from the Bronx?
Yes, they used the discounted metro cards.
These poor underpriviledged Utes….its all our fault ?
What NO racial hate crime? Thats how they get away with it so often, we cant charge them with that crime.
Why would this be a hate crime?
If it was the other way it would be all over the news, Notice they never seem to go after their own.
I missed the part of the article where they describe the race of the victim. Can you point it out, or are you just making things up again?
And he is and was prior out on bail! Ugh
So shocking, what a law abiding tax payer he seems to be on the outside.
Deblasio City! ? ? ? ?
5 foot 6 and 200lbs? he’s eating well while robbing others. Hope the NYPD gets this bloated punk off the streets before he harms anyone else
