GRAND LARCENY —
Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating an individual who is wanted in connection with two grand larcenies—one of which took place at a Jackson Heights subway station and another that occurred on a 7 train.
On April 7, the suspect approached a 22-year-old woman from behind at the Roosevelt Avenue subway station around 6:40 p.m. He reached into her backpack and removed her wallet, which contained credit cards.
On April 9, a 49-year-old woman was bumped into several times by an unknown individual around 3:30 p.m. on a crowded northbound 7 train. When the victim checked her purse, she realized that she was no longer in possession of her wallet, which contained several credit cards and $320 in cash.
The suspect is described as a dark skinned man who was last seen wearing a black knitted cap, gray vest, gray sweater, gray sweatpants and black and white sneakers.
