MTA Police


BALDWIN, N.Y. (WCBS 880) — The MTA is seeking the public's help identifying a man fatally struck by a Long Island Rail Road train last summer.

The incident happened back on July 7 at the Baldwin train station.

Police have released a surveillance image of the man on the station's escalator as well as two artist sketches. 

The man did not have an ID on him or any tattoos or identifiable markings. There were also no matches to any missing persons reports.

MTA Police said they have canvassed the area but found no one who knew him and are now releasing these images hoping someone may recognize him.

Police say the man was wearing glasses, a blue ‘Sky Vodka’ t-shirt, North Face khaki cargo pants, a green colored vest and gray New Balance sneakers. They describe him as being between  between 55- and 75-years-old, of east Asian descent, and partially bald with gray/brown hair around the sides of his head.

No criminality is suspected.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Blondel of the MTA Police at (718) 725-2911 or call the on-call detective sergeant at (718) 361-2201.
