FLUSHING—Police were looking for individuals who allegedly flattened the tire of a woman’s car and stole her belongings in Flushing last week.
At about 2:50 p.m. last Friday, a 68-year-old woman parked her car in front of 25-17 Parsons Blvd., according to the police.
While she was away from the car, a man wearing a gray T-shirt, shorts and sneakers allegedly approached the car and punctured the rear passenger tire with an unknown object, officials said.
After driving a short distance, the woman discovered the flattened tire and parked the car in front of 25-03 Parsons Blvd. to change the tire, police said.
She was approached by a man wearing a light-colored shirt, white pants and a baseball cap and another man wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a black baseball cap, who offered their assistance, they said.
The men allegedly distracted her while a woman wearing a dress and sandals removed the woman’s purse, which had $1,175, a cell phone and several credit cards, from the car, according to the police. The suspects then fled.
A police spokeswoman said the investigation is ongoing.
