Dec. 13, 2016 Staff Report

Police are searching for a woman who allegedly attacked an E train passenger at the 71st-Continental Ave. subway station on Saturday morning.

The victim, an 18-year-old female, was randomly assaulted while waiting for a Manhattan-bound E train at the subway station, police said.

The unknown suspect approached the victim and began hitting her over the head, before dragging her to the ground by her hair.

When other pedestrians began to take notice, police said, the attacker let the victim go.

The victim got on the next train to get away before calling police. She suffered a headache after the attack.

The suspect is described as a black woman, about 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. She was last seen wearing a red hat.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

Every night I see people being harassed by criminals at the Sutphin Blvd. subway stop. They disable the vending machines so riders cannot purchase metro cards and they also interfere with the turnstiles, where are the police? I believe there is a police station just upstairs???


probably one of the assholes who pester people for their metrocards at the sutphin ave E stop. Cops need to do something about that before civilians do.
