A 63-year-old Flushing man has been assaulted and robbed twice within a month inside his own apartment, police said.

The latest robbery took place inside his Kissena Boulevard and Beech Avenue apartment after the suspect broke in on July 7 at around 11:30 a.m., police said.

The suspect soon realized that the victim was home and threw him to the ground. He then slashed the victim on the arm with a knife. 

The suspect hurried out of the apartment and took off on foot, carrying the victim’s wallet and other personal belongings. The wallet contained various ID cards but no money, police said.

Police say that the same man had broken into the victim’s apartment on June 21.

The suspect broke in at around 4 p.m. and discovered the victim was at home, police said.

The suspect threw the man to the ground and snatched his cellphone before taking off west down Beech Avenue. Police said the victim was not injured in that incident.

Police describe the suspect as a black and between 19 and 22 years old. He is about 6 feet tall and slim.

During the first incident, he was seen wearing a white cover on his head, no shirt, dark colored pants and black and white shoes. He was also carrying a black bag with the phrase “Jimmy Jazz” on the front.

Anyone with information in regards 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).
