FOREST HILLS — After cops collared a suspect who allegedly robbed a blind woman in April, police have been seeking the public’s help in finding the second unknown suspect.

Cops said the two suspects approached the 68-year-old blind woman while she walked with her guide dog through the F train station at the corner of Queens Boulevard and 75th Avenue April 16.

According to cops, one of the suspects reached into the victim’s pocket and stole her wallet, and the suspects later used the victim’s credit cards to go on a shopping spree.

Latisha Richardson, 39, was arrested May 23. The second suspect is described as a black man in his 40s, standing about 5-foot-6 and weighting 150 pounds and wearing a black T-shirt, white jacket and black baseball cap and carrying a black backpack.
