Nov. 29, 2021 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for a man who allegedly punched a 64-year-old woman in the head while onboard an M train in Ridgewood and stole her handbag.

The suspect approached the woman at around 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 18 while onboard the train that was approaching the Seneca Avenue subway station.

The man allegedly tried to grab her handbag but when she attempted to flee the train as it entered the station, the suspect pulled her back and punched her in the head.

The thief then disembarked at the Myrtle Avenue / Wyckoff Avenue subway station and fled with the victim’s bag.

EMS responded and transported the victim to an area hospital for contusions on her head. The police released video of the suspect.

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