Police are hoping surveillance video leads them to the man wanted for a knifepoint robbery in Queens.

Investigators say video shows the suspect holding a knife on 38th Street in Astoria shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

They say he attacked a 36-year-old woman, took her purse, and fled in a black vehicle.

The victim was not hurt.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
