A 26-year-old woman was pinned inside a subway turnstile in Rego Park Tuesday by a man who grabbed her wallet during a struggle, police said.
The victim was walking through a full-height security turnstile at around 11:40 a.m. at the 63 Drive Rego Park station when a man grabbed her and trapped her inside.
The woman resisted and fought back and during the struggle the suspect snatched her wallet from her hand.
The man then fled the subway station. The victim was not injured.
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).
Glad they got him, but he’s probably out on bail about now. He ambushed her and basically held her hostage, which should be a federal offense. Where are the cops?
NYC IS BACK!
