Police Search For Suspect In Brutal Attack At Queens Subway Station

NEW YORK (CBS 2)Police were asking for the public’s help after a man was attacked while waiting for a subway in Queens, Dave Carlin reports.

The 66-year-old man was at Elmhurst Hospital with a fractured skull after the attack at a quarter to 11 p.m. on Friday, April 8. Police said he was pounced on by a suspect at the 74th Street/Roosevelt Avenue station whose motive may have been to steal the older man’s cell phone.

“A monster, really, because if you really think about it, that could have been his grandfather or someone’s, that’s someone’s grandfather,” said Mary Murillo of Maspeth.

“Very surprised, seems like he doesn’t care some people don’t care,” said Jose Perez of East New York.

Police with the 110th Precinct Stationhouse want the public’s help catching the suspect they believe to be no older than 25. They released three still shots of him, along with a head-to-toe description: yellow headband, blue ski jacket, grey sweatshirt, jeans and white sneakers.

Contact police if you know anything about this suspect and help ensure Justice for a 66-year-old who never made it home.

    We think its the blacks who are the racists- in the sense that they are biased against ALL races that are not negroid(black). Read all the comments from this column. If it weren’ for barry, this would STILL be a free country. AMEN

    Exile every last one of them outta NYC and watch the crime rate plummet 90% overnight, and see this great city become safe for once. Nahhhhhh….too much to ask because no one has the balls to actually do what everyone knows is the right thing to do.

      Excuse me! Tell your “white” elected officials to stop outsourcing jobs and cutting education. Tell “them” to stop marginalizing the black, latino and poor white community. This is a brutal crime and this coward should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But stop trying to put a singular ethnic or racial face to crime to satisfy your racist aryan pathological pipe dreams. If you must fight crime then do it across the board. The average child molester is a white male age 50 and over with a masters degree or higher. Will there be an initiative to target this group with the same passion as others?

    Political Corruption has made our Country less safe and hopeless to so many people in every spectrum of our Society. Political Correctness makes us look stupid and incapable of saying what we need to say.
    Greed and Corruption of the “have it all Politicians”…Guilty on both sides, has us knocking heads with our God given brothers.
    Yes, I am a Horrible Bad White Conservative as Libs would label me. I love all races, dispise violence and poverty, help whoever I can in need yet it will never be enough…I understand.

    We need to force the people who are reduced to violence to be addressed.

    They need to be stopped in order to try to restart their lives in a positive way or they will be reduced to a life no human should live…like animals in the wild starving for perhaps much, much more than food.

    How do we protect on the other hand the innocent victims? All Americans need to face these issues, deal with them and restore overall safety and security to all.

    The Government will never cure this nor should it. WE must tackle this, but HOW???

    Dark-skinned male ? What does that descripition mean ? Street violence must be at a all time high ! Are there more savages or is it just a sign of our society going wrong ?

    My mother had major surgery. Her doctor told her to take a walk everyday to heal faster. One day she was assaulted by a tall man. He took the Sunday times, which back then was huge, and banged her over the head with it. She feel to the ground and almost busted all her stitches. What a coward, picking on the elderly.
