Police Officer Carlota Payano of the 110th Precinct was on patrol when a bystander approached her with a Shih Tzu. The dog had been found on an Elmhurst street and Payano took Ling Ling to a vet to see if she was microchipped. Luckily, the dog’s owner, Ms. Bell, had microchipped the dog before she was stolen. Payano was able to reach out to Bell, who drove down to the 110th Precinct headquarters at 94-41 43rd Ave. in Elmhurst to be reunited with her dog. “She called the phone number on file and the owner was very surprised to hear that her dog was found because she believed it was stolen from her yard 2 1/2 years ago,” said Police Officer Janine Rivera of the 110th Precinct Community Affairs Unit. “She lives in Pennsylvania and came right away to pick the dog up. She was very happy and grateful to get the dog back.” Photo courtesy of Twitter/110th Precinct A police officer on patrol was able to reunite Ling Ling with her owner after 2 1/2 years.

QC QC Expires 11/17/16 QC POLICE FOUND 40 FROZEN CATS INSIDE A STORAGE UNIT IN LIC By Angela Matua email@example.com/@AngelaMatua The winner of a storage unit auction in Long Island City got a gruesome surprise on Oct. 17. After an auction was held on Oct. 17 to sell off abandoned storage units at American Self Storage, located at 47-30 29th St. in Long Island City, the winner found two freezers in his unit that contained 40 frozen cats. The cats were found in plastic bags and another cat was found skinned on an aluminum tray, according to the NYPD. A 30-year-old female employee at American Self Storage called 911 when she saw the cats at about 5:26 p.m. Police said the storage unit had been paid for by a 66-year-old woman who stopped making her monthly payments in July. The winner bought the unit for $400. According to WABC-TV, the ASPCA is scheduled to perform necropsies on the cats, but must wait until they thaw out to do so. The investigation is ongoing. Man who choked out & raped woman near expressway in Fresh Meadows still at large By Robert Pozarycki firstname.lastname@example.org /@robbpoz New details have emerged as detectives continue to investigate the sexual assault of a 51-yearold woman near the Long Island Expressway in Fresh Meadows early in the morning of Oct. 16. Police released on Oct. 17 a composite sketch of the man responsible for attack that took place at about 6:22 a.m. on Oct. 16 in the vicinity of Horace Harding Expressway and 168th Street. According to authorities, the 51-year-old woman was walking along the sidewalk of the LIE’s service road when she was grabbed from behind by the suspect, who was described as a clean-shaven black male in his 40s with a slim build, standing 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was observed wearing a black, long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans. Police said the perpetrator put the victim in a chokehold and, after she was rendered semiconscious, threw her face first to the sidewalk. He sexually assaulted her, then entered a dark-colored, four-door sedan that sped away westbound on Horace Harding Expressway. The New York Daily News reported that the suspect spoke to the victim in a Chinese dialect and ordered her to clean up before leaving. The victim managed to walk to her workplace, a supermarket about 1 1/2 miles from where she was attacked, and called her son for help. The victim was brought to a local hospital for treatment; her son reported the assault to the 109th Precinct. No arrests have been made, and an investigation by the NYPD Queens Special Victims Squad is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the sexual assault is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
