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 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.

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.
