NYPD Looking For Suspect Making False Bomb Threats

NEW YORK (CBS 2 / AP) — New York City police are looking for a suspect wanted in connection with making false bomb threats at two subway stations in Queens.

Police described the suspect as an 18- to 20-year-old man. He was last seen wearing a gray and white jacket with dark jeans.

He made two calls to 911. He said in the first call there was a bomb in a bathroom at the Union Turnpike Station.

The second call was made about 15 minutes later. The suspect said there was a bomb inside an E train at the Roosevelt Avenue Subway station.

Nothing dangerous was found either time.

It wasn’t clear whether the caller claimed he had placed the non-existent bombs there.
