NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD has released photos and surveillance video of suspects being sought in connection with several of their ongoing investigations.
L TRAIN ROBBERY
Police are looking for a man they say robbed a 23-year-old woman on the L train in Manhattan.
According to authorities, the suspect grabbed his victim’s purse while she was seated on the train as it pulled into the station at 14th Street and 6th Avenue on Oct. 8.
The man then ran off the L train with the 23-year-old chasing him. The suspect then allegedly punched the woman in the face when she tried to pull her purse back from him.
Police say the man then ran off in an unknown direction. He is believed to be in his 20s or 30s, standing about six feet tall and weighing around 180 pounds.
The victim was reportedly not injured and refused medical treatment.
BRONX FORCIBLE TOUCHING
Police have just released surveillance video of a man accused of inappropriately touching a woman in the Bronx.
Investigators say the suspect followed a 53-year-old woman into her Marble Hill apartment building lobby back on Sept. 25.
Investigators say the man struck the woman on the buttocks before turning to leave the building.
