Man Robs Woman, Tries to Sexually Assault Her on Southbound F Train


On Wednesday at about 2:25 a.m. on the southbound F subway line near the Fort Hamilton Parkway station, a man approached a woman sitting alone and put his hand on her throat while pulling out a knife. He demanded that she give him her money and took her purse containing money and an iPhone. He then ordered her to take off her underwear, though he didn’t assault her sexually beyond that.

He then got off the train and is seen in this video crossing the northbound platform at the Fort Hamilton Parkway station:

The suspect is described as a 45-50 year-old black male, about 5’10” and 200 pounds with a stocky build and scruffy facial hair. He was last seen wearing a maroon sweater, dark pants and dark work shoes.

Anyone with info should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
