SUBWAY ROBBERY A woman was robbed at knifepoint while riding the subway last Friday. At about 2:30 a.m., the 44-year-old Queens resident boarded a southbound 2 train and was approached by a knife-wielding man. "Give me your money," he demanded, and pressed the knife up against her face as he went through her jacket and pockets. He removed her phone and close to $1,000 cash. At 66th Street Station, he hopped off of the train and ran out of the station. He is now wanted for robbery. FAILED HOOKUP A 27-year-old lost his watch last week when the woman he brought home after a fun night out stole it from him. At 3 in the morning on Friday, the young charmer returned to his apartment on West 86th Street with a woman he had met at a bar. He left her alone for a minute for a quick bathroom break, and when he returned, she was gone-and so was his $8,000 Rolex. The thief is now at large. According to the victim, she has a bear or tiger tattoo. DOMESTIC ABUSE A 60-year-old woman recently reported to NYPD that she had been abused by her husband. When an officer arrived to investigate at the couple's Central Park West apartment at 5 p.m. on Saturday, however, the couple did not answer the door. The officer called for backup, and when they attempted to enter the apartment, the battered wife tried to prevent them. Police arrested the husband and the wife, who scratched an officer's neck while resisting them. The couple was taken to a nearby hospital, and both refuse to cooperate with police. SNEAK ATTACK A young Upper West Side resident was robbed over the weekend on West 80th Street. The 25-year-old had just exited a taxi at 12:40 a.m. Saturday when a stranger sneaked up behind her and knocked her to the ground. While she was down, the attacker snatched her purse and then sprinted away to Columbus Avenue. The victim was able to recover her purse, but her wallet and Blackberry had been removed. The robber remains at large. STOLEN WEDDING RINGS A middle-aged couple reported to police that two of their rings had been stolen over the summer. On Wednesday, Dec. 5, the couple told police that the landlord of their West 84th Street apartment had alerted them that work needed to be done on their home. After the work was completed in August, the couple's lives returned to normal, until they recently realized that the 41-year-old wife's wedding and engagement rings were missing from the clothing drawer they kept them in. The wedding ring is worth $600, and the engagement ring is worth $32,000.
