FLUSHING — A woman was slapped and had her handbag stolen while walking down the street earlier this month, but police did not have to look far for who they said is the culprit.
On March 1 at about 8 a.m., a woman was on 37th Avenue near Union Street when police said her husband slapped her across the face.
Cher Budhathoki, 34, then ripped a handbag containing credit cards and a phone off the woman’s arm and ran away, police said.
The woman returned home to find the ripped handbag on the couple’s kitchen table, but the cellphone and credit cards were missing, according to the NYPD.
Budhathoki was later arrested and charged with robbery, police said.
