Woman robbed at gunpoint in Floral Park

A woman walking home from a Floral Park train station was robbed of her purse at gunpoint Thursday night, police said.

The woman was walking from the Long Island Rail Road station on Hinsdale Avenue and as she passed over Lowell Avenue at about 7:30 p.m., a man ran up behind her and demanded her pocketbook.

When she refused, the man took out a handgun and again demanded the purse, and she gave it up.

The suspect, who was described as about 19, ran south on Hinsdale, then east on Lowell.

Detectives ask anyone with information on the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
