The NYPD hopes that public can help them identify suspects wanted for a kidnapping that took place in Jackson Heights, Queens last weekend.
According to the police, a 52-year-old woman was riding her bicycle on Saturday, July 20 at 11:25 near 73-20 30th Avenue when a light green 2002-2004 Honda Odyssey struck her, knocking her off her bike. Suspects got out of the van, grabbing the victim and forcing her in the vehicle. The NYPD says, "Once inside the van, the suspects blindfolded and zip tied the victim and then began to beat her. The suspect repeatedly asked the victim 'where is the money'" for 15 minutes, then throwing her out at 32-98 98 Street.
There were 4-5 male Hispanic suspects in the van, and police released a sketch of one of them, described as a dark-skinned male about 35 years old, 5'10" and weighing 280 pounds. Anyone with information in regards to this kidnapping is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
