Woman Put in Choke Hold and Punched in Face on E Train by Female Suspects: NYPD

Suspects (NYPD

Nov. 14, 2018 By Meghan Sackman

A 50-year-old woman was punched in the face and hit on the head with a cellphone by two women on a Queens-bound E train earlier this month, police said.

The victim, who was on the train with her 8-year-old son, was assaulted around 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 2 by the two suspects.

The victim’s son asked her why one of the perpetrator’s children was wearing a costume. This prompted one of the suspects to place the 50-year-old in a choke hold while the other punched her in the face and hit her on the head with a cell phone.

The suspects then ran off the train at the 71 Street-Continental Avenue station and fled the station to the street.

Both suspects are black and are between 25 to 30 years old. One woman was last seen wearing eye glasses, a gray shirt, dark colored pants and had a black jacket tied around her waist. She also had a black purse over her shoulder.

The second individual was last seen wearing a red baseball cap, blue jacket and gray sweatpants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
