Police are looking for a knife-wielding man who robbed a woman at the Queens Plaza subway station Sunday.

The incident comes just a little over two weeks since a homeless man brutally robbed and attacked a 57-year-old woman with a hammer as she walked down a flight of steps at the same station on Feb. 24. The alleged perpetrator in that case has been arrested.

The suspect in the latest incident allegedly approached a 31-year-old woman at around 5:45 a.m. as she too was walking down a flight of steps at an entrance to the Queens Plaza subway station.

The perpetrator in this case pulled out a knife before threatening her and demanding cash, police said.

The victim handed over $200 cash and the suspect then fled into the subway system. The woman was not injured, police said.

Police released a video of the suspect jumping over a turnstile at the station.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident 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 https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/

Remind me of how much the NYPD was defunded? I can’t find any figures for their budget being cut.

My grandfather emigrated to America and was fortunate enough to become a New York City Police Officer. One night he was called to a bar because a customer was too drunk and unruly. Instead of arresting him, my grandfather walked the guy to his home, as the punishment he was going to get from his wife would be far worse than the night in jail.
