Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a woman inside the M/R Northern Boulevard station last week.
The 29-year-old victim was standing on the mezzanine area on June 8, at around 5:50 p.m., when the man approached her, police said.
He threatened to cut the woman if she did not hand over her purse, according to police.
The suspect then grabbed the woman’s purse – that contained credit cards and some personal items – and fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.
The women sustained a minor injury and refused medical attention, police said.
Police have released video footage of the man wanted for questioning.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male 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 public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
New diblasio protocol is if you attempt to hurt someone and you don’t and then make off with their purse instead you get a gift card to boost mobile and a pair of fresh jordans.
Thank goodness the cops were not there. Black lives matter!!!
The station ahead of it, Broadway, has one entrance with no attendant. Since 2014 we’ve been harassed by the guy selling swipes and threatening to kill us, gets in our faces, chases people, throws things, then runs across the tracks. That was BEFORE the bail reform. Be safe out there. Vote MCC (Michelle Caruso-Cabrera). We get who we vote for. City has gone to garbage. My grandparents and great-grandparents wouldn’t believe what happened to the city they worked for.
Its sad i have to repeat the same comment! But i live here. These acts of violence/ crime are just ridiculous! Its so sad to see a nice quiet neighborhood turn into this!
DeBlasion has ushered in the return to the 1970s but the hipster, vegan, socialist nerds on this site and others have no idea what will hit them.
So he won’t be put in jail because only his life matters right?
defund the police and everything will work out magically
why even bother looking, no bail for this psycho. Back out in 5 min
nyc is going to hell
at least hes wearing a facemask
1970s in full effect. Well done Mr Mayor!
Why not let every criminal out of RYKERS & give them free housing.. & a weekly paycheck. & Let the police do their job…
Have you anything relevant to add Sven? Incidentally, it’s ‘Rikers’.
Actually that criminal would be released with no bail and have access to the victims address and personal info. Thx Cuomo/Deblasio.
The criminals want more than that…
