The New York Police Department Monday released the name of the suspect in a homicide at the Canal Street Subway Station in Manhattan Chinatown.
Investigators say David Robinson attempted to pull a backpack off the back of Than Htwe’s son. The action sent both Than and her son Kyaw Zaw Hein tumbling down the stairs. The 58-year-old mother died of her head injuries this week and the family has donated her organs.
In a Facebook post, the NYPD says the “58-year-old-female victim in this case has passed away & the crime has been reclassified as a HOMICIDE. Have you seen DAVID ROBINSON? He is wanted in connection to this incident. If you any info, DM @NYPDTips, or call them at 800-577-TIPS. All calls are anonymous.”
A $10,000 reward is being offered in this case by the New York Chapter of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance.
