A 24-year-old woman was robbed last month inside a Forest Hills train station, according to police.
The victim was inside the 75th Avenue E/F subway station on Dec. 20 around 4:30 a.m. when an unidentified man approached her and forcibly took her purse.
The thief then fled the station in an unknown direction. The victim’s purse contained jewelry and credit cards, with an estimated value of nearly $5,000, according to police.
Police said the suspect attempted to make a purchase from a Manhattan Game Stop—located at 32 East 14th Street—around 10:30 a.m. that same day.
The suspect has been described as black and between 25 to 35 years old. He was last seen wearing a dark cap, orange and black coat and dark pants.
