Elderly New York man attacked and robbed of $17,000 amid crime wave

A suspect is accused of attacking a 66-year-old man who took aim during a robbery in Queens on Thursday as residents continued to suffer under the crime wave.

Police say just after 1 p.m. the victim was walking down 71st Street in Middle Village when the incident happened, Fox 5 reported Saturday.

An individual approached from behind and pushed him to the ground, then allegedly punched and kicked him before fleeing with a bag full of $17,000 in cash.

New York City Police Department (NYPD) Crime Stoppers share surveillance video of the incident, and the victim was apparently heard screaming for help:

The suspect got into a maroon Ford Fusion heading towards Eliot Avenue. Law enforcement too job images of the suspects in the case:

The victim suffered minor injuries and received medical treatment at the scene, according to the Fox report, adding that the suspects had previously been spotted at a nearby pharmacy.

In another recent case, “the NYPD also arrested a man on Saturday who was filmed trapping a woman in a subway turnstile and forcing her to hand over her subway card,” Daily mail reported.

“Rene Castellanos, 61, trapped the 26-year-old woman for several minutes at the Rego Park subway station in Queens on October 11,” the outlet continued, noting that the suspect would face robbery charges.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) recently claimed that although rising crime has kept her awake at night and scared people, ‘New York is still the safest big city from America. Look at Chicago, look at San Francisco, look at Los Angeles, Atlanta and Washington. People leaving New York, I don’t know where they’re going to go because we’re the safest big city in America.

A recent survey found that violent crime in cities across President Joe Biden’s (D) America rose more than 4% in the first six months of the year, according to Breitbart News.
