A woman snatched a man’s wallet out of his back pocket as he was walking home in Long Island City last week, police said.


The 67-year-old victim was walking on the sidewalk in front of 22-14 40th Ave. on Feb. 10 around 6:30 p.m. when an unidentified woman went to steal his wallet.

A struggle ensued, and the victim was pushed to the ground.

The woman managed to get away and fled toward the Queensbridge Houses with the victim’s Metrocard and about $60.

Police said the victim suffered scratches to the face and a bruised eye.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this female is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
