WOODSIDE — The NYPD was looking for a suspect in a robbery attempt in Woodside last month.

Police said that on Nov. 21 at 9:40 p.m., a man came up to a 37-year-old woman as she was entering her apartment near 65th Place and Woodside Avenue and threw her to the floor. The man then tried to yank the woman’s purse off her shoulder, police said.

When he was unsuccessful, he ran away, police said.

The suspect is described as a black or Hispanic man with a light complexion in his late teens to early 20s, police said. He stands 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 3 inches tall and has black, shoulder-length hair, police said.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
