GRAND LARCENY —
Police said that they are searching for an individual who is wanted in connection with two grand larceny incidents that occurred in Jackson Heights and on a moving 7 train in April.
On April 7, the suspect approached a 22-year-old woman from behind around 6:40 p.m. inside the Roosevelt Avenue subway station, reached into her backpack and removed her wallet. The victim’s wallet contained credit cards.
Then, on April 9, the suspect bumped into a 49-year-old woman numerous times inside of a crowded northbound 7 train around 3:50 p.m.
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.
