Man Punched and Choked Woman Before Stealing her Phone in Flushing: NYPD


Nov. 14, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a man who violently robbed a 20-year-old woman in Flushing last month.

The suspect got into dispute with the woman before the argument escalated into a physical confrontation on Oct. 30 at about 10:30 p.m. in front of 34-50 Linden Pl., police said.

The man punched and choked her before snatching her cell phone and fleeing onboard a MTA bus.

The victim sustained bruises to the head and face, but refused medical attention, according to the NYPD.

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