A Queens woman was optimistic about her recovery Wednesday, after she was released from the hospital more than two months after her legs were severed by a subway train.
Service on the 7 Train between Manhattan and Queens was suspended Saturday morning, following a power outage.
According to police, cell phone video captured an assault on the subway from 1 a.m. on Sunday, May 5. The suspect then exited the train at the 69th Street station.
The woman working in the subway booth saw a man who appeared to be dressed like a contractor. According to police, the suspect pulled out a gun, took out duct tape and rope and tied her up.
Police Wednesday were looking for a man who flashed a woman on a subway train in Midtown last month.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
A shutdown of 7 Train service Tuesday evening caused a nightmare ride home for Queens residents.

Police said they were searching for one suspect who exposed himself, and another who groped a woman, in separate incidents Wednesday in the Queens part of the subway system.
Police say Menendez’s family members called authorities several times in the past five years because they were having difficulty dealing with her. Police did not say what the medication was.
Judge Gia Morris ordered Erika Menendez, 31, held without bail and be given a mental health exam. Menendez was arraigned Saturday night on a charge of second degree murder as a hate crime.
