Police are looking for a pair of thieves who allegedly stole a bracelet worth $1,500 from a 65-year-old woman in Woodside last month.

The suspects—a male and female—were riding a gray Dodge SUV on Sept. 12 at around 6:40 p.m. when they pulled up in the vicinity of 59th Street and 37th Avenue and asked the victim for directions, police said.

The female suspect, who was sitting in the rear passenger seat with the window down, placed bracelets and rings on the victim’s arms and fingers while the victim was providing them with instructions. The man was the get-away driver.

The female perpetrator then allegedly snatched the victim’s bracelet from her left arm before the pair fled the scene in the vehicle southbound on 59th Street, cops said.

The NYPD released video footage of the alleged 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). 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.

Eastern Queens Greenway project connecting local parks gets $6 million in City Council funding

The Eastern Queens Greenway plan is a step closer to fruition after Council Member Sandra Ung joined Speaker Adrienne Adams in Kissena Park on Oct. 2, where they announced $6 million in funding to complete two sections of the greenway that will create a seamless connection between Flushing Meadows Corona Park and Alley Pond Park.

“We are fortunate in Eastern Queens to have a number of amazing parks, but in many places they are physically close but disconnected from one another,” Ung said. “This funding will create new connections and improve existing ones to create a continuous and safe path from Flushing Meadows to Alley Pond and beyond. These projects will increase access points to our open spaces, which in turn will make them safer for seniors, families, and those with mobility impairments.”
