Police are in search of an individual they are saying threatened to kill three completely different ladies in the event that they didn’t quit their MetroCards in separate incidents at subway stations on Manhattan’s southernmost tip in a two-day span final week, officers say.
The primary case in the sample occurred Wednesday, when a stranger approached a 32-year-old lady in the mezzanine of the Whitehall Avenue N and R subway station round 10:15 a.m. The suspect grabbed the girl and threatened to kill her if she didn’t fork over her MetroCard. The girl did. The suspect ran off.
Lower than 24 hours later, throughout Thursday’s early morning rush, the identical suspect approached a 78-year-old lady in the identical space and made the identical risk over her MetroCard. Once more, the suspect took the girl’s MetroCard and fled.
Eight minutes later, he struck once more — focusing on a 39-year-old lady on the close by Rector Avenue No. 1 practice station. He obtained away with that lady’s MetroCard, too.
No accidents had been reported in any of the robberies.
Police launched surveillance footage of the suspect (above). Anybody with info is requested to name Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
