Oct. 16, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a man who punched a 69-year-old woman in an apparent road-rage attack in Astoria earlier this month.

The man was sitting in his car outside 33-51 9th Street on Oct. 1 at around 4:50 p.m. when he got into a argument with the woman after she exited a separate vehicle.

The dispute escalated and the suspect got out of his car and threw an object at the woman, according to video footage released by police.

Police said the man then punched and pushed the woman causing her to fall to the ground.

He then got back into his car and fled the scene westbound along 34th Avenue, cops said.

The woman suffered pain and bruising but refused medical attention from responding EMS, police said.

The suspect is described as male and aged between 20 and 30 years of age.

Police released surveillance footage taken during 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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.

With all of the cameras around there has to be a clear picture of his license and it’s interesting how his race wasn’t mentioned. No fashion description about what he was wearing? I hope they get him!

Firefighter injured battling 2-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning: FDNY

The FDNY battled a fast-moving two-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning that injured one firefighter. The blaze broke out in a two-story private home at 114 Walnut St., a block north of Forest Park at 2:34 a.m. Arriving units found heavy fire conditions throughout the basement, first and second floors. Firefighters were hampered by an SUV parked illegally in front of a fire hydrant at the location.

The FDNY transmitted a second alarm, bringing 25 units and 106 firefighters and EMS personnel to the scene. Nearby residents said the building had been undergoing construction in recent weeks and firefighters were evacuated from the rooftop due to sagging conditions towards the rear of the home. Firefighters could be seen through a second-story window pulling down ceilings after flames breached the cockloft, the area between the roof and ceiling.
