The police are looking for a man who robbed an 85-year-old woman—who was using a walker—inside a parking garage in Jackson Heights Friday.

The suspect allegedly approached the elderly woman from behind at around 7:05 p.m. and pushed her to the ground inside the garage located at 74-10 35th Ave. The suspect then grabbed the woman’s purse that was in her walker and ran off. The purse contained the victim’s credit cards and her personal ID.

The alleged perpetrator fled the location on foot to the 74th and Roosevelt Avenue subway station. The elderly woman sustained minor injuries to the right side of her body and was treated on the scene by EMS.

The suspect is described as being about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing approximately 200 pounds. He has a dark complexion, heavy build and a mustache. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat with the White Sox logo on the front, a light-colored face mask, a black winter jacket with yellow trim, black pants and black shoes.

The police released surveillance video and photos of the suspect obtained from the garage and the 74 Street/Roosevelt Avenue station.

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).

Your leadership and moral values are hurting the quality of life and safety in our own neighborhood.

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.
