Woman Attacked Inside Her Astoria Apartment Building and Robbed: NYPD

Female who allegedly used stolen Metrocard (NYPD Crimestoppers)

March 27, 2019 By Meghan Sackman

Police are searching for a man who followed a 37-year-old woman into the lobby of an Astoria apartment building and then choked and robbed her earlier this month.

The suspect allegedly approached the woman from behind, grabbed her by the neck and threw the victim to the ground inside her lobby at around 1:10 a.m. on March 2, police said. He then took the woman’s wallet that contained $150, a MetroCard and her credit cards, and fled in an unknown direction.

The incident took place in the vicinity of 33rd Street and 34th Avenue, police said. The victim was not injured.

Two days later, the victim’s MetroCard was used by an unidentified woman at the 155th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard station at around 5:06 p.m., police said.

Police are searching for the woman and the male suspect for questioning.

The man is described as Hispanic, about 6 feet tall, and was last seen wearing a camouflage coat with a design on the back, and blue jeans.

The woman who used the victim’s MetroCard is described as Hispanic, 160 pounds, and between 30 and 35 years old. She was last seen wearing  a black coat, blue jeans, black shoes and a black baseball cap.

Anyone with information in regards to these two suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Growing up in Astoria this was rare. You used to have Greek, Italian, Croatian, Polish men who would beat you into a pulp if they caught you doing this. Now we have
men with hair buns.

It’s “supposed”, not “suppose.” At least learn proper English if you’re going to disparage entire communities.

Of course not. Let’s defend the criminals and the polices set forth by government that allows criminals to roam the streets to rape, rob, and assault innocent civilians. Grammar police are on duty to make sure everyone is held accountable-unlike this lowlife who robbed this woman. Shameful

Pat Macnamaracist I see you blamed DeBlasio for all your problems, but why didn’t you blame brown people, immigrants, hipsters and bike lanes for all your problems like usual?

If you are 30 seconds late for a parking meter you get a ticket. This is DiBlasio’s NYC where vermin can prey upon innocent citizens while his drug addict wife pilfers millions…

DiBlasio’s NYC where crime is at historic lows (as reported by a police department that hates the mayor and has no motivation to make him look good) ?

I don’t have any motivation to make him look good either.

I’d never thought I would live to say this… I miss Bloomberg.

A person being robbed in Queens is DeBlasio’s fault? Quite a stretch. Has no one been robbed in New York City before? Also as far as I know mice and rats are not assaulting people.

it isn’t a stretch Heather. Have some compassion for the victim instead of defending the honor of that crook DiBlasio. He is so proud of measures that have eroded quality of life for civilians. As a woman you should be outraged that a neighbor of yours was attacked and robbed, Shame on you

This happened on March 2nd? It took 25 days to post this information?!

As a woman who lives alone in Astoria, I feel like this should have been posted IMMEDIATELY.

what is logic

Wait so:

crime high = DeBlasio’s fault
crime low = magically not DeBlasio’s fault

Is that about right?
