Sunnyside Woman Beaten And Robbed

By Liz Goff
Police are searching for a heartless thief who viciously beat a 54-year-old Sunnyside woman early on January 26.

Cops said the woman was walking south on 46th Street between 39th and Skillman Avenues at about 6:30 a.m. on January 26 when an unknown man grabbed her from behind.

The suspect threw the woman to the ground and punched her multiple times in the face, then stole her purse and fled eastbound on Skillman Avenue, police said.

The purse contained approximately $200 cash, along with the woman’s iPhone and credit cards, police said.

The woman was treated at the scene for injuries she suffered in the attack.
