Man in Critical Condition After Being Punched Near Queens Plaza

Aug. 6, 2018 By Tara Law

Police have released a photo and video of a suspect who allegedly punched a 35-year-old man in the face early Sunday near Queens Plaza.

The male suspect got into a confrontation with the victim at around 1:15 a.m. near 41-10 29th St., police say.

The suspect punched the 35-year-old man in the face, sending the victim crashing to the pavement. The victim knocked his head against the pavement and was left unconscious.

The suspect then got into a white sport utility vehicle and drove north on 29th Street. 

Emergency responders rushed the victim to a local hospital, where he is now in critical condition.

The suspect is described as a bald, dark-skinned man. He was last seen wearing a light-colored long sleeved shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information in regards 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 Daily News reported that the victim a visitor from FL will probably not survive. Change the charge to homicide. Residents paying all that rent just to be a victim of assault and possibly murdered.

What does their high rent have to do with anything? No one should have this happen to them, poor or rich.

Chicago is the perfect example of how a city can suffer from high crime even while we’re in a strong national economy with across the board low unemployment.
Money alone cannot stop crime. Career criminals will not go away quietly. Businesses will not open in an area that’s infested with crime.
Investments in education, job training and infrastructure will ONLY work if it’s in conjunction with tough policing and tough laws. Don’t let Deblasio turn NYC into Chicago.

That’s a great point, look at all of Trump’s ties to Russian organized crime and the money laundering that Manafort, Gates etc did for him. Having money doesn’t mean you don’t break the law.

Apparently the victim was looking for his uber ride and knocked on the wrong car window.

What this article fails to report is that the victim was from out of town for a family event (he was from Florida). He had called for an uber and mistakenly approached the perpetrator’s vehicle believing it to be the uber. For this, he paid with his life. This video should be getting much more media prominence as this dangerous killer needs to be found and put away

The good news is, the guy’s face is on camera and they’ll catch him very soon.
The bad news is, Deblasio will release him the very next day and he’ll join the “violence interrupters” program.

I don’t see any police around LIC. In fact, I think they need to increase the police presence around Court Square/Queens Plaza. Too many people.

NYC Crime is Going Up!

It’s not only LIC, it’s citywide. This is what happens when you have a mayor that neuters the police and decriminalizes many quality of life crimes.

Are you kidding? LIC 20 years ago was a sh*t show – all of Queensborough plaza was strip clubs and bodegas with lots of drug use out in the open. Sure, it’s been completely overdeveloped, but certainly crime and quality of life have improved.

I remember LIC with LESS CRIME than know, especially shootings and violent crimes. The more the wealthy move in the more CRIME will come. LIC was NEVER this BAD. It had much less people hat you seemed to know almost everyone in the neighborhood. It is now a a FACELESS community. It STINKS now , with over development less stores, higher prices, more homeless shelters with more hotels with don;t need and some will become homeless shelters.. etc…etc…etc…

But people back then knew to stay away from those areas and other areas around here if you wanted to stay away from trouble. Now things are happening right in front of our homes and backyards.

Although I don’t think it’s de Blasio’s accomplishment. You’ve got Bloomberg and Guiliani to thank for that. As some article wrote: “When the history of the period is written, he’ll be a footnote to the two-decade revolution that was the Giuliani–Bloomberg period. He’s a six-foot-five-inch dwarf.”

This is DumBlasio’s fault. This single isolated crime proves that all NYPD crime stats are completely fake. Fake than the FAKE MRLIC that’s stealing my name.
