A 75-year-old man was thrown to the ground by a knife-wielding man in Ozone Park in broad daylight Friday.

The victim was walking in the vicinity of 97th Avenue and 80th Street when a man approached him at around 2:20 p.m. and pushed him up against a fence and down on to the ground.

The suspect, who held a large knife, called on the elderly man to hand over his property while he was on the pavement. The assailant then went through the victim’s pockets but was unable to remove anything.

The suspect fled the location on foot in an unknown direction. EMS responded and transported the 75-year-old to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.

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).

Criminal lowlifes are always “on duty” around the clock.
The words “broad daylight” should no longer elicit any shock or disbelief.
