Oct. 7, 2020, By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly assaulted a 32-year-old woman on a 7 train as it was approaching the Flushing-Main Street subway station last month.

The perpetrator got into a dispute with the woman while they were both riding an eastbound 7 train as it was pulling into the Flushing-Main Street subway station on Sept. 9 at around 6:30 p.m., according to police.

The suspect then punched the woman in the face with a closed fist, according to police.

The assailant then got off the train at the Flushing-Main Street station and headed for the exit and the woman chased after him. She eventually lost sight of him as he fled, police said.

The suspect was last seen walking westbound on Roosevelt Avenue before entering the Bland Houses complex in Flushing, located at 40-05 College Point Blvd.

The woman was transferred by EMS to New York-Presbyterian/Queens in Flushing where she was treated for lacerations and bruising to the face.

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 CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

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.
