The police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding a white female wanted in connection with a grand larceny that occurred on January 6, 2013 at the 4th Ave-9th St station. At around 10:45 a.m., a sleeping subway rider awoke to find his wallet, watch, and cellphone taken. The NYPD tells us that the crime occurred on the R train (not the N train, as has been previously reported).
The suspect, pictured above, has since been seen using the victim’s ATM card.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting your tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. The NYPD says all calls are confidential.
