Police are searching for a suspect who attempted to rob a man at knifepoint inside a Long Island City subway station last week.
The suspect allegedly approached a 46-year-old man inside the Queensboro Plaza subway station on Nov. 13 at around 2:40 p.m. and displayed a knife, according to police.
The perpetrator then demanded cash from the victim who was standing on the Manhattan-bound platform, police said.
The victim resisted and the suspect then fled the station without any property. There were no injuries.
The suspect is described as a man with a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing white sneakers, black pants, a blue shirt, a black hooded jacket and an orange-rimmed baseball cap.
Police released video footage of the suspect taken from inside the subway station.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the individual 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 CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM
