Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating an individual who is wanted in connection with a grand larceny incident at a subway station in Sunnyside on July 13.
Around 1 p.m., an unidentified man accompanied an 85-year-old woman into the 46th Street-Bliss Street 7 train subway station. He reached into her purse and removed the victim’s wallet, which contained $130 in cash, a debit card and personal papers. The suspect then fled the location in an unknown direction.
The man was described as a five-foot Hispanic man who is believed to be in his 30s and weighs approximately 125 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, dark colored shoes and a blue baseball cap.
