Suspect Beats 12-Year-Old Boy, Steals His Bike Inside 67th Avenue Subway Station

Feb. 15, 2021 By Allie Griffin

Police are searching for a suspect who beat a 12-year-old and stole his bike at a Forest Hills subway station Thursday.

The suspect approached the boy inside the mezzanine level of the 67th Avenue subway station at about 5:20 p.m. and began punching him, police said.

He punched the boy in the head and throughout his body and then forcibly grabbed his bicycle. He fled with the bike on a Manhattan-bound train.

The victim refused medical attention, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the male 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.

A 91-page summary analysis of the report from the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development paints a vivid picture of the rental landscape across the five boroughs, the places where renters live — and what they can afford.
