A man grabbed a 61-year-old woman’s bag while she was sleeping on a subway bench in Queens Plaza earlier this month.
The woman was taking a snooze on the Mezzanine level of the Queens Plaza “E” station when a man stole her bag around 6:15 am on July 7th that contained her cellphone, jewelry and miscellaneous paperwork.
The suspect is described as a male, black, 30-35 years old, 5-foot-eight and weighing 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a blue navy V-neck sweater and light colored pants.
Police have released a photo of the suspect and are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
