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.

If you’re stupid enough to take a cat nap in the hellhole that is Queens Plaza, you only have yourself to blame. The hayseeds living in NYC these days still think they are back home dozing on the porch swing in Peoria.

NYC has always been a city of people, including hayseeds, from elsewhere. It’s why the city is great. Idiot.

needless to say, taking a nap anywhere in the does not justify someone making you a victim of any crime.

this woman could have had health issues, and passed out from heat exhaustion and needed to rest. maybe she didn’t intend on taking a nap here.

what is wrong with you? This dude is clearly a whack job. he’s wearing a sweater, AND a sweatshirt in July.

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder. The teacher, George Rosa, 53, was shot in his abdomen by a stray bullet fired by Ford, who was just 17 years old at the time of the shooting but was sentenced as an adult given the severity of the crime, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
