From Sunnyside Post:
Another mugger is targeting Sunnyside and Woodside women.
In the past two weeks, three young Asian women have been followed from the 52nd Street subway station, pushed to the ground and have had their personal property stolen, said Sgt. David Porter, who spoke at the monthly police precinct 108 meeting on Tuesday.
All three muggings have occurred between 11:30 pm and 1:30am on either a Friday or Saturday night.
The police have yet to get a description of the man/men, since the women were approached from behind, before being knocked to the ground.
This latest wave of muggings is similar to what occurred last month in the heart of Sunnyside when five women were followed from the 40th Street subway station and mugged by 16-year-old Damari Morris, from Brooklyn. In that case, too, Asian women in their 20s were among the victims. The victims’ cell phones, iPods, mp3 players and cash were taken.
