Feb. 17, 2020 By Kristen Torres

A woman snatched a man’s wallet out of his back pocket as he was walking home in Long Island City last week, police said.


The 67-year-old victim was walking on the sidewalk in front of 22-14 40th Ave. on Feb. 10 around 6:30 p.m. when an unidentified woman went to steal his wallet.

A struggle ensued, and the victim was pushed to the ground.

The woman managed to get away and fled toward the Queensbridge Houses with the victim’s Metrocard and about $60.

Police said the victim suffered scratches to the face and a bruised eye.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this female is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

I grew up in Ravenswood (not far from Queensbridge) in the 1960’s-1970’s and Queensbridge was an area where crimes were constantly committed. You would think after 60 plus years, new generations would want to change that and have a safe neighborhood.


COMPSTAT isn’t the issue, this is just a system used for statistics and to track crime in the neighborhoods. Blame the new bail reform laws that were put into place on 01/01/2020. And no one should try and argue that it isn’t because of this. If you really look at the laws and the ones that changed then you will understand why crime is going up. Just to name a few: 1st degree Stalking while committing a sex offense, 2nd degree Manslaughter,5th degree Arson as a Hate Crime,Tampering with physical evidence anyone who commits these crimes gets to walk scotch free.
