The police are looking for a group of suspects who assaulted two women inside a movie theater in College Point last month.

The suspects – two men and two women – got into a dispute with the victims while watching a film at the College Point Multiplex Cinema, located at 28-55 Ulmer St., on July 5 at around 7:10 p.m., according to police.

When the movie ended, the suspects approached the two victims – aged 33 and 29 — and began to physically attack them, according to police.

The 33-year-old woman was punched and kicked in the head by the group while her cell phone was also stolen, police said. The 29-year-old woman was punched in the face, cops said.

The suspects then fled the scene to parts unknown.

Police say that the 33-year-old victim was transported to New York-Presbyterian Queens where she was treated for non-life-threatening head injuries.

The 29-year-old victim sustained minor injuries and refused medical attention at the scene, police said.

Police on Wednesday released images of the suspects wanted for questioning.

They are all described as being in their 20s with light complexions and thin builds, according to police.

It is unclear what sparked the initial argument.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
