Thief Threatens to Cut Woman at Northern Boulevard Station, Makes Off With Purse: NYPD

(NYPD and Wikipedia)

June 19, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

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.

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.

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.

Actually that criminal would be released with no bail and have access to the victims address and personal info. Thx Cuomo/Deblasio.
