Nov. 18, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Police are searching for a man who snatched a woman’s bag with $2,000 cash inside in Flushing earlier this month.

The 51-year-old woman was walking on the sidewalk near 41-82 Main St on Nov. 2 just before 3 p.m., when the unknown man grabbed her bag and ran off, police said. The victim’s bag contained approximately $2,000, identification cards and credit cars.

The alleged bag-snatcher then fled northbound on Main Street, cops said.

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

Our local politicians wont lift a finger. they’re more concerned gambling parlors and bordellos and shrouding them from police action.

Common sense

With all the robberies going on in Flushing one would expect the city to notice and increase policing.
