Police are looking for a knife-wielding suspect wanted for slashing and robbing a man inside a Kew Gardens subway station Wednesday.

The suspect approached a 26-year-old man at around 8 a.m. while the victim was standing on the southbound F train platform inside the Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike station, police said.

The perpetrator then took out a knife and slashed the victim multiple times in the face, arm, and back, according to police.

He then stole the man’s cellphone and fled the station to parts unknown, police said.

The victim was transported by EMS to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.

Police on Thursday released images of the suspect wanted for questioning. The assailant, described by police as a dark-skinned male, was last seen wearing a cream-colored Adidas t-shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information in regard 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 public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
