The police are looking for a man who tried to rob a teenager at gunpoint while on board a 7 train in Queens last Wednesday.
The suspect approached a 19-year-old straphanger at around 10:35 p.m. while onboard a Manhattan-bound 7 train and then demanded his phone. The thief then punched the teen multiple times in the face before displaying a firearm.
The alleged perpetrator fled the train with nothing when it entered the Willets Point subway station. The teenager declined medical attention.
Police have released video of the suspect that was taken in the vicinity of the incident.
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).
