April 20, 2018 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for two men who allegedly stole a 66-year-old woman’s wallet at J-Mart in Flushing last month.

One of the suspects allegedly approached the victim from behind and removed her wallet from her purse at the 136-20 Roosevelt Ave. store. The second man shielded the thief with his jacket to ensure no one could see, police said.

The wallet contained $600 in cash and several credit cards.

Police released footage of the incident today and said the theft took place on Wednesday, March 28 at around 8:30 p.m.

The first suspect is described as Hispanic, last seen wearing a black and gray baseball cap, a black jacket, black pants and black sneakers.

The second man is a described as Hispanic with eye glasses. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black jacket, a gray hooded sweater, black pants and black shoes.

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

This is the second theft to have taken place inside J-Mart in the past two months, according to police. In February, a man allegedly stole a woman’s purse from her shopping cart.
