The New York Post reports that 21-year-old Wade Hairston, who is six feet tall and weighs 200 pounds, robbed women in Woodside, Queens because of the crime's ease.


"I choke women and take their stuff. Women are easy. They don't put up a fight," sources quoted Wade Hairston, 21, as telling detectives.


Police say that Hairston's choking victims ranged in age from 23 years old to 69 years old, but they suspect there may have been additional victims who have not come forward. The Post story also includes an alleged complaint made by Hairston that one of his victims spilled her coffee all over his Nikes when she passed out.
